Legal Agreements and Licensing


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.


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.
