The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) issues a public warning against the activities of unauthorised websites offering binary options trading

Published on June 17, 2016

The AMF is publishing a list of new websites offering binary options trading, for which no authorised investment services provider could be clearly identified.

Here is the list of new websites recently identified:
www.abroption.com
www.allianz-brokers.com
www.banque-investissement.com
www.barclaystraders.com
www.connecting-trade.com
www.collinsgestion.com
www.f-generalsecurities.com
www.finpari.com
www.gointrading.com
www.ibl-markets.com
www.microption.com
www.mytradeoption.com
www.solution-capital.com
www.stock-binary.com
www.switzerland-capital.com
www.swisspartners-ag.com
 

A list of all unauthorized sites to offer trading of binary options is available in the site on the AMF’s website.
These websites may change very quickly and this list is not intended to be exhaustive.

To ensure that the intermediary offering banking or financial products or services is authorised to operate in France, you can view the register of financial agents (https://www.regafi.fr) or the list of authorised intermediaries in the financial investment advisor (FIA) or participating investment advisor (PIA) categories (https://www.orias.fr/search).

If the intermediary in question is not on these lists, we strongly recommend that you should not make use of their services, as they are in breach of the applicable legislation and are not required to comply with basic rules of investor protection, information disclosure and claims handling.
