Peter Pesic & Co. Securities Inc – Client Agreement
This is a legal contract (the “Agreement”) between Peter Pesic & Co. Securities Inc organized under the laws of the Republic of Mauritius, its successors and assigns, (hereinafter referred to as “Peter Pesic” or the “Company”) and the party (or parties) executing this document (the “Customer” or the “Client”). Client can be an individual or a legal entity except for stateless persons; individuals under 18 years of age and citizens and legal entities of countries in which the Company’s service is not offered.
These Terms of Business (hereinafter referred to as “Terms”) constitute a part of your Customer Application Form. It is your responsibility as Customer to carefully read these Terms and to inform the Company of any questions or objections which you may have, before entering each and every trade order. In entering your trade orders with the Company, you affirm and warrant your thorough understanding and acceptance of these Terms, as they are set here and as may be amended from time to time by the Company.
These Terms govern the basic aspects of interaction between the Company and the Customer with respect to opening and closing the Customer’s positions, as well as of placement, cancellation and modification of the Customer orders executed by the Company.
“Customer” or “Client” means any individual or a legal entity except for stateless persons; individuals under 18 years of age and citizens and legal entities of countries in which the Company’s service is not offered.
The following is a brief overview of key points explored further in these Terms. Please ensure you review this entire document prior to opening an account.
To open a customer account it is required to:
Complete the application process and include all KYC/AML documentation. Upon completion of the application, the Customer will be notified that their documents have been received. The Customer’s account will then be approved, declined, or a request for more information will be sent. If approved, the Customer will receive an email from the Company including instructions on the account. The Company makes best effort but makes no guarantees that accounts will be approved within a certain agreed number of days provided that all proper KYC documentation is remitted at time or registration. All applicants must be 18 years of age or older to register for an account with the Company. These Terms shall be considered accepted unconditionally by the Client upon the Company’s receipt of an advance payment made by the Client in accordance with this Agreement.
The Client and the Company enter into every operation either on Peter Pesic website or otherwise as principals, and the Company does not act as an agent on the Client’s behalf unless otherwise agreed. The Client shall be directly and fully responsible for fulfilling all of his/her obligations regarding his/her operations on Peter Pesic website or otherwise.
