IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, International Banking Law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account or creates a new customer relationship with our financial institution.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. In this time, accounts are available only for new customers with references from our clients. In other words, you cannot open an account in any way without such references.

We provide service only for members of UK cooperative which is our business partner. We not provide any services for general public. To obtain any our service you must obtain cooperative's membership first.

Please note all clearing money which are available inside banking system are specific electronic currency like CHW of Swiss Bank Wir and their market value is equal to currency with the same name which circulate Internationally and issued by appropriate national Bank. But clearing money are not the same money which issued by National Banks and have not nothing common with them, only market value. After loan repayment ESB automatically convert clearing money into non-clearing money issued by any national bank and their owner is free to transfer them into any bank of the World. Because specific electronic currency which carry functions of clearing money never interfere with the same name currency issuing by National Banks permission for issuing is not necessary, like nobody ask permission to issue bank cheque or permission for stock of private placement. This currency works only as complementary currency and never crate any competition for currencies of national banks. By other hand clearing money make national currency more strong. because extend turnover and shrink national currency emission's volume. In this case we decrease national currency inflation and in this way national currency become more powerful and provide positive influence on country economy. Clearing money also allow drastically eliminate financial crisis' consequences.
