Identity Verification & Protection

Identity verification
and protection

As a Regulated provider of Forex investment services, TradeFred is required to comply with strict policies to ensure the safety of our clients.

We aim to build a clear picture of our customers, in order to understand their behaviours and trading habits. This helps us easily identify any irregular activity within an account and act appropriately. In addition, TradeFred operates stringent identity verification procedures to validate and protect our clients.

Here are the documents you will be asked to provide upon opening a real money trading account:

  1. Proof of identification (a colour copy of a valid passport or national identity card)
  2. Proof of residence (utility bills, local authority tax bill or bank statement that is no more than six months’ old)
  3. A scanned copy of your credit card (both sides) – only necessary if you intend to deposit funds by card

Please note that for a document to be accepted, it needs to be valid and contain your full name, an expiry date, your place and date of birth, as well as a recent photograph.

We reserve the right to request additional identification documents where necessary.

TradeFred also monitors factors such as shared IP addresses, devices, plus the times at which trades are usually carried out. This information is then used to query anything that falls outside of these parameters.

As part of our commitment to offering a seamless trading experience, TradeFred will ensure that all validation is carried out to cause as little interference as possible.
