Important information


Important information about procedures for opening a new account

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, tax ID number, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

USA PATRIOT ACT Certification

Pursuant to the USA PATRIOT Act and final rules issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a U.S. bank or a U.S. broker-dealer in securities (a "Covered Financial Institution") is required to obtain certain information from any "Foreign Bank" that maintains a correspondent account with it.

As permitted by the final rules, Macquarie Bank Ltd. (“MBL”) has prepared a Global Certification for use by any financial institution that believes it requires a USA PATRIOT Act Certificate from MBL or one of its branches or listed subsidiaries. Please use this Certification instead of asking MBL or one of its branches or listed subsidiaries to complete a separate Certification form.
