The AMF is warning the public against several companies proposing atypical investments without being authorized to do so
The Autorité des Marchés Financiers regularly updates its black lists of new websites and entities proposing atypical investments to investors in France without being authorized to do so.
Here is the list of the new websites recently identified in the atypical investments category:
Since January 1, 2021, the AMF has added 21 websites to its list of unauthorized entities proposing atypical investments. Over the year 2020 as a whole, 78 names were added.
Since the creation, in 2017, of this black list, which identified websites that were illegally offering diamonds for investment, the AMF has added 345 unauthorised internet addresses to this list, in various categories like livestock, wines or champagne, or, more recently, luxury watches.
These websites may change very quickly and these lists presented in alphabetic or thematic order are not intended to be exhaustive.
Any offer to invest in miscellaneous assets must be registered with the AMF to be marketed. The white list of offers recorded in miscellaneous assets is available on the AMF website.
