U.S. Patriot Act Certification

U.S. Patriot Act Certification

Pursuant to the USA PATRIOT Act and the final rules issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a U.S. bank or a U.S. broker-dealer in securities (a "Covered Financial Institution") is required to obtain certain information from any "Foreign Bank" that maintains a correspondent account with it. 

As permitted by the final rules, Aareal Bank AG has prepared a Global Certification for use by any financial institution that believes it requires a USA Patriot Act Certification from Aareal Bank AG. Please use this Certification instead of asking Aareal Bank AG to complete a separate Certification form.
