Important note: The attempted use of financial institutions in the global marketplace to launder money is a significant problem that has caused great concern in the international and domestic community. This has resulted in the passage of strict laws and increased penalties for money laundering worldwide. These laws have been extended to include other financial institutions including stand-alone Futures Commission Merchants (FCM). As CHS Hedging is an FCM, we have been required to establish an anti-money laundering compliance program. As part of our compliance program, we are now required to obtain additional information to verify the identity of all potential customers. For individual, partnership and joint accounts this will require a copy of all of the individuals’ driver’s license(s) or state identification card(s) that have ownership in the account.
