Why do I need to complete my account verification?

We are required to verify the identity of every investor who uses our portal as part of our Anti-Money Laundering program, laid out by the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970. Per our terms of service, a third-party accreditor verifies the information provided and ensures the individual isn’t on an OFAC list (Office of Foreign Assets Control). We cannot accept this information over the phone, only through the website.

We take the security of your information very seriously. The information you provide is sent via secure API to Cognito (formerly BlockScore) and NetVerify, which are two trusted and widely used service providers in the space. We do not retain any of the information on our servers, and access is restricted. 

You can read about Republic's privacy policy here, and each of the privacy policies for Cognito and NetVerify by Jumio.

Failure to complete your identity verification may result in a cancellation of your investment commitment.
