Security & Regulation
Tempus is one of the first Money Service Businesses (MSBs) to be fully licensed in all required US States. We are committed to world-class compliance and protecting your organization with strict adherence to all applicable regulations and codes relating to Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing.
Tempus’ policies and procedures were created in order to detect any suspicious activity that may threaten your transmission of funds. We monitor numerous sanctions lists in order to screen our customer accounts, beneficiaries, and related parties or entities to ensure legal and positive customer relationships. These strict policies are enforced and regularly audited by a dedicated team of AML compliance and legal professionals that are here to keep your money safe.
In addition to state licensing, Tempus is registered with the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Money Service Business (MSB) and also has oversight by three federal agencies:
- Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)
To comply with restrictions against debarred parties and/or individuals.
- Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN)
For ongoing compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act, as mandated by Congress.
- Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre (FINTRAC)
Canada’s financial intelligence unit.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. 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. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
