U.S. investment regulation
Given the existence of certain American regulations likely to have an extra-territorial scope, ING no longer accepts to perform transactions on financial instruments nor to provide services to open a securities account:
on someone’s behalf and for natural persons with American nationality and/or having a legal, fiscal or postal address in the United States
on which a proxy has been given to a person with American nationality and/or having a legal, fiscal or postal address in the United States
In the event of such service was provided nonetheless and in which the financial instruments were acquired and deposited on a securities account, ING would maintain the right, after having notified the client at least 60 calendar days in advance, to allow him/her the possibility to transfer such financial instruments to another financial institution, to sell the relevant securities at their market value and to close such securities account.
ING shall bear any costs, except where the client:
provided wrong information to ING about his/her nationality or their legal, fiscal or postal address
neglected to take all appropriate measures to limit such costs
In case of the client acquires American nationality subsequently, or notifies a new legal, fiscal or postal address in the United States to ING, ING shall end the possibility for the client to perform transactions on financial instruments.
Furthermore, after having notified such decision to the client and having allowed a period of 60 calendar days to transfer such financial instruments to another financial institution, the financial instruments still on the securities account shall be sold at their market value and the securities account shall be closed. In that case ING shall not bear any costs or charges.
