KYC requirements

I’ve received an email from Invest Engine with a list of KYC requirements that among other requirements includes bank statements as well as certified investment/savings certificates as proof of source of wealth.

I’m trying to understand why I’ve been asked to share these. In other platforms I’ve used in the past it has been sufficient to self-certify as an accredited investor, without the need for sharing such potentially sensitive documents.
