Fidelity Group is pleased to establish professional relationships with introducing agents, and other businesses acting as offshore intermediaries. These clients make up our professional client base, which consists of a wide variety of businesses in the corporate services field. This includes, but is not limited to, other company formation and registration firms, trustee service firms, trust firms, attorneys and law offices, accountants, banks, financial institutions, tax consultants, and many other fiduciary and corporate service agents from related fields. Our professional clients receive preferential rates at a substantial discount, as well as other bonuses and services unavailable to our end-user clients. Professional clients with particularly high volumes of business receive even greater discounts, which are based on the number of clients they service.
As with all clients, we are required to perform the Know Your Customer (KYC) Due Diligence (DD) work for our professional clients. We are obliged by below to familiarize ourselves with our professional clients and their business before we can establish a professional intermediary relationship. Despite the foreboding names, this process is quick, and straightforward, and once completed our professional clients enjoy the benefit of an expedited ordering process that is easier, faster, and less expensive. Becoming a professional client will allow you to recoup your initial costs in short order. Record Keeping Requirements - Intermediary KYC As an established, confirmed professional client, you will be able to collect and hold all of your clients KYC and DD documentation yourself. This is an enormous time saver for registered professional clients, because the shareholder and beneficial owner documents that normally must be sent to our office for review and approval can be checked on site by the intermediary professional client. Your clients won’t have to wait for documents to be scanned, or shipped, and you will be able to provide them service right away. Additionally you can offer clients savings on courier costs. The only exception to this advantage is if your clients require bank introductions or nominee services provided directly by Fidelity.
