U.S. Patriot Act Certification
Pursuant to the USA PATRIOT Act and 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, DenizBank AG has prepared a Global Certification for use by any financial institution that believes it requires a Patriot Act Certification from DenizBank AG. Please use this Certification instead of asking us to complete a separate Certification form.
