Proof of Identity Requirements

January 25, 2014

Why are my proof of identity documents required to open a new live account?

To keep in compliance with the Australian Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorism (CT) Financing Act 2006, Vantage FX is required to verify your identity prior to opening a new trading account.

There are different sets of requirements for Australian applicants and International applicants.

What documents are needed to verify my proof of identity?

A copy of your passport is the easiest and fastest way to have your identity approved and verified. To see more details about the AML and CT requirements or other documents you can use for verification, please read our ‘Proof of Identity’ page. Please note Vantage FX protects the privacy of your personal information and it will never be shared with third-parties. Feel free to review our Privacy Policy if you wish.
