With the objective of protecting investors, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) and the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (ACPR) regularly update their black lists of new websites offering investments in the unregulated foreign exchange (Forex) market and in derivative products whose underlyings include crypto-assets, without being authorized to do so.
Here is the list of new unauthorized entities recently identified :
These lists of all unauthorized websites to offer investments on the unregulated foreign exchange (Forex) or derivative products whose underlyings include crypto-assets are available on the AMF’s website (section: Espace épargnants > Protéger son épargne > Listes noires) and the AMF Protect Epargne application, and the Assurance Banque Épargne Info Service – ABE IS's website (section: Vos démarches > Se protéger contre les arnaques > Les listes noires des sites internet et entités non autorisés).
These websites may change very quickly and these lists are not intended to be exhaustive.
To ensure that the intermediary offering banking or financial products or services is authorized to operate in France, you can view the register of financial agents (https://www.regafi.fr) or the list of authorized 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 any of the last two 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.
