If you are a private individual, you will be required to have a NID (National Identifier) before entering into transactions in financial instruments

Who needs an NID and what are the implications?


Individuals who want to enter into a transaction for MiFID financial instruments need to register a NID. This is a requirement of the MiFID II regulations which aim to increase transparency on EU financial markets, and also to raise the level of investor protection by allowing authorities to identify each counterparty in a regulated transaction.

The NID is a global identification code for private individuals, and is contingent on what citizenship(s) you hold. Before entering into MiFID transactions with Handelsbanken we will need you to provide your passport number in order to create your NID.

If you are not a British citizen please contact your local branch and they will help you register your NID.
