Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA)

The purpose of FICA is to combat money laundering activities by, among other things, establishing a Financial Intelligence Centre and imposing certain duties on institutions and other persons that might be used for money laundering purposes.

These persons/institutions are identified as "accountable institutions" in the Act. Momentum is such an accountable institution.

As a financial institution, Momentum has the obligation to establish and verify the identity of all its existing and new clients when transacting with them after 30 June 2004.

If we do not verify a client's identity, the law will prevent us from doing business,performing any transactions or complying with any requests sent in on a specific contract. We will, for example, not be able to pay out any maturity proceeds, make any changes to a policy or pay out any proceeds to a bank account whose owner's identity we have not verified.

When conducting a transaction with us, you may be required to send us identifying documents that are applicable to you in order to assist us in complying with the law. Your swift response when requested for this documentation will make sure that there are no delays in dealing with your policy.
