Information is key to protection

Our systems and processes rely on us having the most up-to-date information about all of our customers. Soon you will be asked to do one or all of the following:

  • confirm or update your existing personal or business details
  • provide some new information which may include original documents

We understand that this may cause some inconvenience, and we apologise in advance for this, but we will work with you to ensure the process is as simple and straightforward as possible.
