Why do I need to complete the KYC procedure?
Today having the most sophisticated security software on your platform is great but ultimately, you never truly know who the real owner of the account it. GXCM implements a process called ‘Know Your Client’ (KYC) as another added precaution to protect all their accounts from any type of fraud. It is our way of getting to know who our clients are, and ultimately recognizing them as the true holder of a specific account. This comes very handy when funds need to be sent back to the rightful owner.
Having your account fully verified by completing the KYC procedure in just a few simple steps will protect your account. Getting your account verified early means you can continue to trade with no interruption generating more additional income.
How does one verify an account?
The verification process entails sending specific documents to the compliance department. Below is a detailed list of these necessary documents. Please keep in mind that there are explicit guidelines that need to be met for quicker verification. For example, when sending in the forms, it is essential that the size of the attachments do not exceed the 5MB limit, plus you may only send the forms in the following file formats: JPG, PDF, PNG.
