Identification and statutory declaration requirements for ANZ Investments

Acceptable forms of identification

When you invest with ANZ Investments, you are required to provide certified copies of:

  • proof of identity (valid); and
  • proof of residential address (issued within the last three months).

For more information, please refer to page one of our ANZ Investments Identity Guide (PDF 348kB).

Certifying your identification

Identification documents that have a photo image need to be certified as true copies that represent a true likeness of the individual by an authorised person. Residential address documents or documents that do not have a photo image also need to be certified as true copies by an authorised person. For more information, please refer to page two of our ANZ Investments Identity Guide (PDF 348kB).

Alternatively, an ANZ staff member or an ANZ Investments approved financial adviser can verify your identification and address.

Please note that without acceptable proof of identity and residential address, you will be unable to make a withdrawal from your account.
