Withdrawal Policy

Withdrawals are made as easy as possible for traders. STR Capital does all in its access to process the withdrawals as quickly as possible but certain conditions have to be met and regulations complied with before withdrawals are fully successful.

The client has to make sure to choose the right method of withdrawal and provide all the necessary information required for that payment method to work successfully.
Once the request has been placed, it will be received into the system by STR Capital with its request status. As the company’s accounts department starts working on the request, the status of the request will change from “requested” to “working”. After the working on the withdrawal request is complete, it will be given the “processing” status. At this stage, the desired amount by the client will be taken out of the trading account balance. Following the debit, the amount is sent to the client via the chosen method.
The client has to give the company at least one full business day for processing any withdrawal requests. The time can be shorter or longer depending on a variety of factors. The company will, however, bring in the client’s notice if the withdrawal is to take longer than the usual 24-hour working day.
Any withdrawal from the client has to be reimbursed via the same method that the client used for depositing funds in the account. Therefore, the client has to be sure that every piece of information about the bank or chosen payment method is entered with 100% accuracy.
In the case of bank cards, only the amount that was deposited in the trading account can be withdrawn by the client. This withdrawal limit applies for 90 working days. The clients wishing to have their withdrawals treated as a priority should use bank cards as the means of withdrawal.
The client will be subject to pay a withdrawal fine of $250 if he/she requests a withdrawal from the trading account without any trading activity.

STR Capital can inspect into any aspect of the trading account of the client that’s associated with STR Capital. If the company detects any fraudulent activities or suspicious actions on the account, it has the right to seal the account or close it altogether without serving any notice to the account holder.
All the funds deposited by the clients are maintained in segregated accounts. These segregated accounts are not a possession of STR Capital. STR Capital is only using the services of a bank or a financial institution to store the funds of its clients safely. Once a withdrawal request has processed successfully and the funds have left the “segregated account”, any delays or issues with the reimbursement of the funds will not be considered a responsibility of STR Capital.
Technical issues may arise, and in case one takes place while a payment processing is taking place, the company has the right to halt the process and cancel the payment transfer altogether.

AML policy and KYC policy
Here, AML policy refers to Anti-money Laundering policy and KYC policy refers to Know Your Customer policy.
The AML policy and KYC policy laid out on this page apply to STR Capital and all of its affiliates, who will henceforth be referred to “the affiliates” on this page. The purpose of this policy is to not allow, when it is in the knowledge of the company and its affiliates, any activities that facilitate the use of money for laundering and/or criminal and/or illegal purposes. All the parties associated with the company as affiliates, employees, officers, and partners are obligated to adhere to the contents of the AML policy and KYC policy.
To make the policy clear, money laundering refers to and will refer to on this page as an activity by a person, corporation or any other entity to keep the sources of money hidden to avoid legal actions. At the same time, this person, corporation, or an entity attempts to make this money appear as legal and lawful.
Money laundering takes place in multiple phases. While there are three main phases that make up the money laundering process, a fourth phase can be added for further clarity. The existing three phases include placement, layering, and integration. The fourth phase can be added to explain the start of the process and is named as production. This is the most important stage of money laundering as it defines how entities produce huge amounts of money for laundering purposes.
In the production stage, the entity, which can be a corporation, an individual, a government official, a group of government officials, etc., finds ways to produce money for laundering purposes. For example, a government might bring unnecessary and unneeded projects into the country to make commissions during the execution and completion of these projects. By joining hands with the hired companies and offering them a “cut”, the government shows the costs of the projects much higher than the actual costs on the records. The difference between the “real” cost and the cost “on record” is the money that will be used for laundering purposes.
The placement phase is when this money is converted into different financial instruments and placed into different types of accounts for storing it until it is transported out of the system. The money can be converted into bonds, traveler’s checks, foreign currencies, etc. and then put away in a number of accounts at banks.
The layering phase is the most important, deceptive, and deciding phase of money laundering in which the money launderer moves the stored amount in and out of tens and even hundreds of different accounts. These accounts can be fake i.e. opened in the names of individuals who are either dead or completely unaware of accounts in their names. The purpose of moving the money in and out of accounts is to layer the records in such a way that the trail of the money becomes unrecognizable.
The last and the integration phase is when the money is brought back into the system. This money is then used for making assets, starting businesses, and conducting illegal activities under the disguise of “legal”. Any funding that helps terrorist organizations, terrorist activities, criminal actions, etc. is also considered illegal in the system of STR Capital.
Any staff members, partners, affiliates, stakeholders, etc. of STR Capital are required by law and obligated under the provision of anti-money laundering and Know Your Customer policies to adhere to the contents of these policies. These STR Capital employees, partners, affiliates, etc. have to ensure their adherence to these policies to make the system safe for the legal clients. The laws that they have to adhere to include provisions from FATF’s Money Laundering Recommendations, Basel Committee of Banking Supervision’s account opening guidelines from 2003, and Customer Due Diligence for Banks.
STR Capital is dedicated to customer’s safety and hence has introduced continuing training programs for its partners, affiliates, and employees to learn about anti-money laundering and KYC policies. It facilitates all of its stakeholders to receive the necessary courses and educational training programs to apply KYC and AML policies in their daily company-related activities.
