USA Patriot Act

In response to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the US Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act.

Parts of this Act apply to the financial services industry and require certain financial institutions to request specific information from clients.

Under the USA PATRIOT Act and other regulations, financial services firms must establish a compliance program, which includes policies and procedures to detect and report suspicious transactions to the government, as well as ensure compliance with the new laws. Firms must also implement specialized employee training programs, designate a special compliance officer and conduct independent audits of the effectiveness of the compliance program.

The regulations also impose new requirements regarding client information and verification of that information. Financial services firms are required to verify the identity of the clients with whom they do business, where appropriate determine the source of funds in a client’s account and obtain the information about a client’s wealth.

As part of our compliance with the new USA Patriot Act, 2nd Generation Financial (a subsidiary of 2nd Generation Capital, LLC d/b/a of BrightChoice Financial, LLC) may ask clients for additional information and documentation about certain accounts and transactions. This information may be used to verify client identity.
