OK, I can take you through our Customer welcome process, which will take about 5 or 10 minutes. In order for us to prove your identity, open your account and allow you to possibly trade the same day with us, we ask that you:
The full distance marketing disclosure mandates the information that the Financial Conduct Authority considers a firm should provide to a client before entering into a financial services contract. However, the regulator recognises that providing a customer with a huge volume of legal information over the telephone could be potentially confusing, and therefore allows firms to provide a “cut-down” abbreviated version, which covers the most essential information, which is in summary"
The financial service we will provide you with will be an execution-only dealing service, which means we will not provide investment advice for you.
Full details of the costs of the service are documented in our Rate card which will be posted/e-mailed out to you in due course, and is available on our website.
Please be aware that if you do not use the account to trade, and your account valuation is below £15k (Stock and cash) or £10K (funds) you will be charged £20 + VAT every 6 months.
Please be aware that if your account valuation is below £5100 you will be charged £30 +VAT in June.
You can cancel the account at any time and no closure fees will apply. However, this right to cancel does not extend to any trades and/or foreign exchange transactions you have placed. Obligation to settle these in full will still apply.
Further information describing the nature of the service (including investments and risk warnings) is set out in our Terms of Service. Should you have any questions, please contact us by phone, email or letter.
Before I can start the Account Opening process, you can view the Terms of service on our website that will form the contract between yourself and us and upon which we intend to rely.
For your own benefit and protection you should carefully read these Terms of Service, as well as our Best Execution Document, before you start to trade. If you do not understand any point please ask for further information.
Please confirm that you understand this statement and agree to continue with your application on this basis.
I just need to mention that this call is being recorded and may be monitored for training purposes.The information you provide will only be used for the purposes of this application.
I also need to let you know that we will check your details with a fraud prevention agency. If false or inaccurate information is provided and we suspect fraud, this will be recorded and may be used by us and other organisations to prevent fraud and money laundering.
Full details explaining how your information may be used is contained within our Customer Terms of Service, which can be found online at http://www.iii.co.uk. Is that ok?
Please be aware that in addition to our own fees and charges, there may be other taxes and/or costs levied by third parties which are not paid by us and we will pass onto you – such as Stamp Duty Reserve Tax, which we will collect on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs
Without your consent I’m unable to continue with your application. A copy of our terms can be found on our website. Alternatively I can send you an information pack, which contains an application form and a copy of our terms.
