Important Information Regarding the Opening of an Account at Cabrera Capital Markets
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person or business entity who opens an account.
This notice answers some questions about Cabrera Capital Markets Customer Identification Program.
What types of information will I need to provide?
When you open an account, your firm is required to collect the following information:
- Date of birth
- Identification number:
- U.S. citizen: taxpayer identification number (social security number or employer identification number)
- Non-U.S. citizen: taxpayer identification number; passport number and country of issuance; alien identification card number; or government-issued identification showing nationality, residence and a photograph of you.
You may also need to provide a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

What happens if I don’t provide the information requested or my identity can’t be verified?
