CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES HAVING RECEIVED, READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE FOREGOING CUSTOMER AGREEMENT AND HEREBY AGREES TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS HEREOF.
The phrase “money laundering” covers all procedures to conceal the origins of criminal proceeds so that they appear to originate from a legitimate source. Sharp Angle Ltd. (“Company”) aims to detect, manage and mitigate the risks associated with money laundering and the financing of terrorism. The Company has introduced strict policy aimed on the detection, risk prevention or mitigation in respect of any suspicious activities performed by customers.
The Company is required to constantly monitor its level of exposure to the risk of money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
The Company believes that if it knows its client well and understands its instructions thoroughly, it will be better placed to assess risks and spot suspicious activities.
CUSTOMER DUE DILIGENCE
Effective Customer Due Diligence (”CDD”) measures are essential to the management of money laundering and terrorist financing risk. CDD means identifying the customer and verifying their true identity on the basis of documents, data or information both at the moment of starting a business relationship with customer and on an ongoing basis. The customer identification and verification procedures require, first, the collection of data and, second, attempts to verify that data.
During the NobleCapitalHouse registration process an individual customers provide the following identification information to the Company:
Customer’s full name;
Customer’s date of birth;
Country of residence/location of customer; Mobile telephone number and e-mail.
During the NobleCapitalHouse registration process a corporate customers provide the following identification information to the Company:
Full company name;
Registration number and date;
Country of registration/incorporation;
Mobile telephone number and e-mail.
After receiving the identification information the Company’s staff should verify this information requesting the appropriate documents.
Appropriate documents for verifying the identity of customer include, but are not limited to, the following:
For an individual customer: A high resolution scanned copy or photo of pages of a passport or any other national ID, indicating family name and name(s), date and place of birth, passport number, issue and expiry dates, country of issue and Client’s signature.;
For a corporate customer: a high-resolution copy of documents showing the existence of the entity, such as Certificate of Incorporation, and, where applicable, Certificate of Change of Name, Certificate of Good Standing, Articles of incorporation, a government issued business license (if applicable), etc. To verify proof of address of the customer the Company requires one of the following to be provided, in the same correct name of the customer:
A high-resolution copy of a utility bill (fixed-line phone, water, electricity) issued within the last 3 months;
A copy of a tax or rates bill from a local authority;
A copy of a bank statement (for a current account, deposit account or credit card account);
A copy of a bank reference letter.
When making a funds deposit or funds withdrawal via credit/debit card a customer is required to provide a scanned copy or photo of the credit/debit card (front and back side). The front side of credit/debit card should show the cardholder’s full name, the expiry date and the first six and the last four digits of the card number (the rest of the digits may be covered). The copy or scan of the reverse side of credit/debit card should show the cardholder’s signature, but the CVC2/CVV2 code must be masked.
If an existing customer either refuses to provide the information described above or if a customer has intentionally provided misleading information, the Company, after considering the risks involved, will consider closing any of an existing customer’s account.
The Regulations measures require further research and identification of customers who may pose a potentially high risk of money laundering/terrorism financing. If the Company has assessed that the business relationship with a customer pose a high risk it will apply the following additional measures:
Obtaining the information relating to the source of the funds or the wealth of the customer will be required (this will be done via e-mail or phone); Seek further information from the customer or from Company’s own research and third party sources in order to clarify or update the customer’s information, obtain any further or additional information, clarify the nature and purpose of the customer’s transactions with Company.
When obtaining information to verify the customer’s statements about source of funds or wealth, the Company’s staff will most often ask for and scrutinise details of the person’s employment status or business/occupation. The Company’s staff will ask for whatever additional data or proof of that employment/occupation that may be deemed necessary in the situation, particularly the appropriate confirming documents (employment agreements, bank statements, letter from employer or business etc.).
The Company will conduct ongoing customer due diligence and account monitoring for all business relationships with customers. It particularly involves regularly reviewing and refreshing Company’s view of what its customers are doing, the level of risk they pose, and whether anything is inconsistent with information or beliefs previously held about the customer. It can also include anything that appears to be a material change in the nature or purpose of the customer’s business relationship with Company.

2. The Company offers different Bonus schemes, from time to time, which differentiate in the size of the bonus in relation to the initial deposit in the Trading Account. The Bonus shall become a part of the deposit for securing Trading results, but shall not be available for withdrawal, unless the Required Trading volume has been performed in the Trading Account (the “Required Volume”). The Required Volume shall be equal to the Bonus amount received divided by Four (4), not counting any trades on CFD instruments and Forex symbols with pip value of less than 4 USD per lot.
3. These Terms and Conditions apply to all bonus promotions referenced or listed on www.NobleCapitalHouse.com, affiliated sites, or distributed in any and all forms of electronic communication. Bonus will only be applied to one account and cannot be transferred between accounts. Sharp Angle Ltd. reserves the right to change and/or cancel the Bonus Terms and Conditions at any time by posting the new guidelines on its website.

4. If the requirement is not fulfilled within 60 days (44 market days) from the deposit date, the bonus amount will be withdrawn out of the clients account. If this should cause a margin call, Sharp Angle Ltd. will wait for client to either deposit additional funds or close all of his/her positions. For example: if an account is funded with $1000, and received a bonus of 1000$, a trading volume of 250 lots (1000/4) has to be done, in order to withdraw bonus funds and profits.
5. Bonus deposits are not pro-rated and trading volume requirements must be met to redeem entire bonus and profits amount posted before eligibility of withdrawal. For example, if you received a bonus of 1000$ on a 1000$ deposit, you must trade a total of 250 standards lots to redeem the bonus amount.
6. The bonus and profits can only be withdrawn once the minimum trading requirements outlined above have been met. By accepting the deposit bonus, clients may NOT withdraw the trading profit funds at any time and nor the bonus funds they received until minimum trading requirements have been met according to the restrictions. Client may also withdraw the funds they deposited at any time, but not the trading profit and bonus until minimum trading requirements have been met. In case of withdrawing the initial deposit, the Сompany reserves the right to cancel any profits and/or bonuses left in the account.
7. By accepting the deposit bonus, the clients agree to these Terms and Conditions. Sharp Angle Ltd. maintains the right to change the terms of the bonus policy at any time. Notice will be given to clients via posting on the website or email. Sharp Angle Ltd. will not be held responsible for failure of the client to regularly review and confirm posted terms and conditions.
