Letter to our OISF U.K. & Ireland Investors

Dear Investor,

I am contacting you on behalf of the Oikocredit International Share Foundation to request particular documents that would help us strengthen our verification process on our Investors. It is in our best interest to ensure that the documents of our Investors are up-to-date and compliant.

It’s Oikocredit International Share Foundation legitimate interest to collect these additional documents in order to perform background checks on our Investors to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. Therefore in order to stay compliant with the Anti-Money Laundering regulation we request such data.  We kindly ask to please provide us with the following documents listed below:

  • Certified copy of a valid Government Issued I.D. such as Passport, Driver’s License (Back & Front)

In line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), we ask you to carry out redaction [1] on the copy of the identification document before it is realised, i.e. black out the information such as:

  • your social security number and/or
  • personal identification number and
  • document number

The purpose of redaction is to irreversibly remove the exempt information from the redacted copy of the information. Pursuant to the GDPR, it is in the legitimate interest of OISF to perform background checks on our Investors to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. The requested data is minimal, safeguarded, and we do not retain the data longer than necessary

  • Copy of a Bank Statement (No older than 3 Months) that states your: Full Name, Full Address, and Up-to-Date Bank Account Details for your investment with OISF.
    • In line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), please redact any transactions and balances printed on the statement
  • Copy of a recent Utility Bill (No Longer than 3 Months) that states: your current Address and Full Name. Utility bills include phone bills, internet subscriptions and basic gas/water/electricity.

Your information will be processed in line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Thank you in advance for your cooperation. In case you have any questions, please contact our office via telephone number +31 (0)33 422 4040 or email address:


Yours thankfully,

Investor and Business Support Department

[1] Redaction guidance:


For hard copies: photocopy the ID and block out the sensitive information using a black marker pen or quality correction fluid. Photocopy the document again for release.


For digital documents: photocopy the ID, remove all the sensitive information and replace it with [redacted]. Print the redacted version and scan in the printed version as a pdf. You can use Adobe Acrobat Pro, however please note that in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), you must not use the highlighter tool to highlight the text in black to 'hide' it. The highlighter tool does not properly redact information. If the highlighter tool has been used, copying and pasting can reveal the sensitive information even if the document has been converted to a PDF.
