Customer security is a key consideration for HotTrades and we take our commitment to safeguarding our client’s best interests extremely seriously.
We have implemented a series of KYC (Know Your Client) procedures designed to secure the private information of our clients while keeping the company in line with compliance, best practices, and policies for financial services companies. These are aimed at preventing any instances of identity theft, money laundering, fraud, or terror activity.
We operate on a strict Zero Tolerance basis. Any fraudulent activity will be documented and will result in the immediate closure of any trading accounts related to such activity. Funds deposited in any such accounts will be forfeited.
These procedures secure your personal data and your financial transactions remain secure. Without completing our KYC procedures, your trading activity will be limited, and you will not be able to withdraw funds from your account.
Opening and funding a trading account with us will require the following documents to be submitted:
Proof of Identity document must clearly contain the following:
The minimum validity period of an identity document must be at least 6 months before the expiration date.
For your security, please cover the CVV number and the seventh to twelfth digits of your card/s number/s, leaving the first six and last four digits visible on both sides of your card/s. The card holder’s name/s and expiry date/s must be visible.
Submit the required documents in PDF / JPEG / JPG / PNG image formats to the compliance department via the user account.
Submit your verification documents as soon as possible after the activation of your trading account. Please note that your missing verification may result in limitations on your trading account.
Consider that with missing verification, any withdrawal requests from your trading account will not be processed.
