We are required to check that potential investors are not subject to economic sanctions enforced by the U.S. government under the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).  

OFAC administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals. 

OFAC provides a public search tool to check whether individuals or organizations are subject to these sanctions. Read more about broker-dealer’s responsibilities related to OFAC on the FINRA website or read the Treasury Department’s OFAC FAQ for more information.
