Questionnarie Layout

The risk posed by each player varies in accordance with their geographic, economic and activity profile. An assessment of such risks must necessarily include a review of the player’s financial profile, including their source of wealth and source of funds. The initial step and fundamental approach laid out in the legislation to carry out such an assessment is to ask the player a number of questions to gather information, and where necessary, the documentation required to substantiate the player’s relative declarations.
