Beneficial ownership form

A Beneficial ownership confirmation doc will be sent to your account email via the DocuSign service (This will only ever be sent from a YouHodler domain e.g. [email protected]).

  • This is a legal document in which you attest that you are the rightful owner of your funds and is a standard internationally mandated anti-money-laundering practice, either where the funds are being transferred from a trust or company, where funds exceed a certain amount, or where it has been indicated that the income is as a result of certain transactions like sales of certain classes of asset;

  • The DocuSign verification should take no more than a few minutes of your time, and that will mostly be governed by your internet connection speeds.

Please be advised:

  • We do not accept photos of electronic documents (document screenshot, photo of monitor with the document, screenshot of the document from a mobile device, etc.);

  • Due to international and domestic legislation that govern our onboarding a bank statement is not in and of itself a proof of source of funds.
