Optim Investment finance department handles all withdrawal requests submitted. From the time the request is made, Optim Investment normally process each withdrawal request within 1 hour. However, in case of shortage of data on the client side, or delays on third-party side, the processing time may be longer.
The Optim Investment finance team will determine the method of withdrawal. Client cannot request a withdrawal method. All funds must be returned to the source of the original deposit. However, in some cases, this may not be possible (such as in cases where the original deposit source was a MasterCard). Optim Investment’s finance department will venture to find the fastest method of processing a clients withdrawal.
Identification is required for all withdrawals, regardless of the withdrawal amount. If the account is initially funded by credit or debit card, or is at any point funded using a credit or debit card, Optim Investment will require a copy of the front and back of the credit card used, a government issued photo ID (such as a drivers license or passport) and a 3-months recent proof of address (such a bank statement or utility bill). Mobile phone bills and other general mail will not satisfy this requirement. If the Optim Investment account has been funded using multiple credit or debit cards, the Optim Investment finance department will require copies of all cards used before a withdrawal is approved.
Notwithstanding the above, if the withdrawal amount and/or the cumulative withdrawal amount, is or exceeds $1,800 or €1,800, no funds shall be transferred until the client’s identity, age and place of residence have been verified.
If the account is initially funded by wire transfer, or is at any point funded by wire transfer, a copy of the bank statement from the originating account showing the transfer will be required. Should the name on the bank statement differ from the person named on the Optim Investment account, further documentation showing the connection between the user and the bank account will be required.
If the account is funded by an e-wallet (such as Qiwi), the client will be required to submit a photo ID and proof of address (as described above) where the address of the document submitted matches that on the users account at Optim Investment.
When sending required documents, please follow these guidelines:
- Please always send colour copies, scans or photographs
- Please do not enlarge, shrink or otherwise manipulate the size of the subject matter
- When sending copies of cards, please conceal the middle 8 numbers on the card. Please ensure the first and last four digits are visible. Cards sent showing all digits will be deleted immediately.
- When sending bank statements, please ensure the name and address information are visible, as well as the transfer sent to the company. You should then conceal all other information.
If the withdrawal amount, or cumulative withdrawal amount on the account, exceeds €1,800 or $1,800 (depending on account currency), Optim Investment’s finance department will require certified copies of all identification documents, regardless of whether uncertified copies have previously been submitted.
Documents must be certified as true original copies by a notary public, or at the post office.
No withdrawals will be processed until such time as the Optim Investment finance department has obtained all required identification and verified their authenticity. Once identification has been obtained once (or in the case of higher limit withdrawals, twice), ID will not need to be provided again with the exception of if additional payment methods or cards are used to fund the account, in which case copies of further cards or bank statements will need to be provided.
Once the withdrawal has been approved, please allow an additional 5 to 6 working days for the funds to show in a client account. Please note that larger withdrawal amounts may take additional time as they may be subject to fraud checks by the processing and receiving banks. These additional checks are not performed by, or at the request of, Optim Investment and we do not have control over this process.
