The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) and the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (ACPR) are publishing a new updated list of websites and entities offering investments on the unregulated foreign exchange (Forex) market in France, without authorisation to do so. This news release is the sixth warning issued by the AMF and ACPR since 7 July 2011(*) . Information in this press release is no longer up-to-date.
NB: these websites may change very quickly and this list is not intended to be exhaustive.
The updated list is as follows:
Do you have any questions or queries? For all information, go to the following website:
Assurance-Banque-Epargne Info Service: www.abe-infoservice.fr or call 0811 901 801, Mondays to Fridays from 8am to 6pm.
AMF: http://www.amf-france.org or call 33 (0)1 5345 6200, Mondays to Fridays from 9am to 5pm.
The AMF and ACPR remind you of the specific risks attached to Forex products offered to the general public.
Before committing yourself, you should always check that the financial intermediary offering or recommending investments features on the list of financial institutions authorised to do business in France (https://www.regafi.fr).
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.
