Phase A - Client Onboarding
Prediction is under the obligation to verify the identity of all account holders. The identity of an individual is verified by means of a government-issued identity document (“ID”) and proof of residency (“POR”) for that individual.

We can only accept certifications that were carried out by a qualified certifier such as lawyers, notaries, licensed financial intermediaries, asset managers, banks or public institutions issuing such certifications. The certification should state that it is a true copy of the original and has to be written in Latin letters. You can use our certification template: Certification template for ID.
