Information collects about you

This website ( may also supplement the personal information you provide with information received from third parties, including business partners, contractors, analytics and other service providers. In the case of investment and other services in order to be compliant with statutory regulation it is necessary to carry out Know Your Client checks.

Personal data is legitimately processed and may be cross-referenced to help us improve the overall accuracy of the information and its completeness. This helps me better tailor my interactions with you and helps us prevent identity fraud together.
