Asset Tokenization Services OU Anti-Money Laundering and Know Your Customer Policy (hereinafter – the “AML/KYC Policy”) is designated to prevent and mitigate possible risks of Asset Tokenization Services OU being involved in any kind of illegal activity.

Both international and local regulations require Asset Tokenization Services OU to implement effective internal procedures and mechanisms to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, drug and human trafficking, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, corruption and bribery and to take action in case of any form of suspicious activity from its Users.


AML/KYC Policy covers the following matters:

1. Verification procedures
2. Compliance Officer
3. Monitoring Transactions
4. Risk Assessment


1. Verification procedures

One of the international standards for preventing illegal activity is customer due diligence (“CDD”). According to CDD, Asset Tokenization Services OU establishes its verification procedures within the standards of anti-money laundering and “Know Your Customer” frameworks via Internal and Third-party operated solutions.


1.1. Identity verification

Asset Tokenization Services OU’s identity verification procedure requires the User to provide Asset Tokenization Services OU with reliable, independent source documents, data or information (e.g., national ID, international passport, bank statement, utility bill). For such purposes


Asset Tokenization Services OU reserves the right to collect User’s identification information for the AML/KYC Policy
purposes and share it with the relevant third-parties.


Asset Tokenization Services OU will take steps to confirm the authenticity of documents and information provided by the Users. All legal methods for double-checking identification information will be used and Asset Tokenization Services OU reserves the right to investigate certain Users who have been determined to be risky or suspicious.


Asset Tokenization Services OU reserves the right to verify User’s identity in an on-going basis, especially when their identification information has been changed or their activity seemed to be suspicious (unusual for the particular User). In addition, Asset Tokenization Services OU reserves the right to request up-to-date documents from the Users, even though they have passed identity
verification in the past.


User’s identification information will be collected, stored, shared and protected strictly in accordance with the Asset Tokenization Services OU’s Privacy Policy and related regulations.


Once the User’s identity has been verified, Asset Tokenization Services OU is able to remove itself from potential legal liability in a situation where its Services are used to conduct illegal activity.


2. Compliance Officer

The Compliance Officer is the person, duly authorized by Asset Tokenization Services OU, whose duty is to ensure the effective implementation and enforcement of the AML/KYC Policy.

of money laundering, terrorist financing and other illegal activity.


3. Monitoring Transactions

The Users are known not only by verifying their identity (who they are) but, more importantly, by analyzing their transactional patterns (what they do). Therefore, Asset Tokenization Services OU relies on data analysis as a risk-assessment and suspicion detection tool. Asset Tokenization Services OU performs a variety of compliance-related tasks, including capturing data, filtering, record-keeping, investigation management, and reporting. System functionalities include:


1) Regular check of Users against recognized “black lists” (e.g. OFAC), aggregating transfers by multiple data points, placing Users on watch and service denial lists, opening cases for investigation where needed, sending internal communications and filling out statutory reports, if applicable;


2) Case and document management.

With regard to the AML/KYC Policy, Asset Tokenization Services OU will monitor all transactions and it reserves the right to:

● ensure that transactions of suspicious nature are reported to the proper law enforcement through the Compliance Officer;
● request the User to provide any additional information and documents in case of suspicious transactions;
● suspend or terminate User’s Account when Asset Tokenization Services OU has reasonably suspicion that such User engaged in illegal activity.

The above list is not exhaustive and the Compliance Officer will monitor Users’ transactions on a day-to-day basis in order to define whether such transactions are to be reported and treated as suspicious or are to be treated as bona fide.
