As Core Spreads is regulated by Financial Conduct Authority , every new client must pass a few basic compliance checks to ensure that you understand the risks of trading and are allowed to trade. When you open an account, you’ll likely be asked for the following, so its good to have these handy:
A scanned colour copy of your passport, driving license or national ID
A utility bill or bank statement from the past three months showing your address
You‘ll also need to answer a few basic compliance questions to confirm how much trading experience you have, so it’s best to put aside at least 10 minutes or so to complete the account opening process.
While you might be able to explore Core Spreads‘s platform straight away, it’s important to note that you wont be able to make any trades until you pass compliance, which can take up to several days, depending on your situation.
