Who signs for beneficial ownership?

Answered by: 

Question: 
Is the person who opens the account for beneficial ownership the person who comes into the financial institution?
Answer: 

Not necessarily. Usually the person who opens the account is the person who signs the certification. This was a discussion in the Federal Register. It needs to be the person who can say all the information on the form was correct.
