Virtual License

Virtual Trader License

In some cases clients of our brokers (governments, banks or instutional) would not accept to sign for a trader licence, or at least not in the initial phase of negotiations, or the broker does not yet want to disclose buyer's information. In such case we offer the broker to apply for a 'Virtual License' in the name of that client with limited client information to HANSE. The License must be later formally converted to a regular Trade License
