AML Guidelines

Anti-money laundering (AML) regulations require us to maintain up to date client information on an on-going basis and where relevant obtain details of controllers and beneficial owners. 

To help us meet our regulatory and legal requirements, please see the AML Corporate Classifications document which details a number of different entity classifications. We will verify your organisation based on this classification. 

Once you have confirmed the Sub Type of your firm on the AML Corporate Classificatons form, you are then able to refer to the AML Documentation Guidelines which lists the required documentation for your entity. Please send certified documents to the relevant Fund Groups administration address along with the AML Corporate Classifications selection form clearly showing your selected Sub Type. Please do not send original documents. 

Where a Letter of Assurance is required a template is provided on the right of this page. 

Anti-money laundering regulations prevent us from releasing proceeds without first having obtained verification documents, and may result in a delay in our acceptance of further funds. 

What is a Corporate Sub Type?

A corporate sub type is a way of classifying an entity which indicates their ownership structure and how they are regulated. 

Who is a Beneficial Owner?

The Beneficial Owners are those who own or control more than 25% of the voting rights or are entitled to more than 25% of the company’s profits. The ultimate Beneficial Owner(s) must be a natural person. Depending on the corporate sub-type, the list of documentation guidelines will state if Beneficial Owner details are required (Full List of Directors and shareholders).
