Opening an Account

If you are interested in opening an account with Carolinas Investment Consulting LLC, please contact any of our consultants through the contact information listed with each bio or by calling our main number (704-643-2455).

Anyone opening an account should be aware that on April 30th, 2003, the Department of the Treasury and the Securities and Exchange Commission issued Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act. This rule requires that all financial firms assist in the prevention of money laundering activities by knowing the true identities of new customers.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for a potential client of Carolinas Investment Consulting LLC is that when an account is opened, we will ask for the name, address, social security number, date of birth and other information that will allow us to properly identify each person connected to the account.

We will also require a physical copy of the following documentation:

  • For individual/joint accounts: Copy of a valid driver’s license (unexpired) or a copy of a valid passport (unexpired) or other current government issued identification.
  • For corporate accounts or other entities: Documents demonstrating the existence of the entity such as articles of incorporation, a government issued business license, a partnership agreement or a trust agreement, as well as appropriate resolutions identifying authorized representatives to access the account.

We appreciate the patience and cooperation of new clients as we support our nation’s defense against money laundering and terrorism.
