The AMF warns investors against the activities of CAC Invest
The AMF draws the public's attention to the activities of CAC Invest, noting in particular that the company is not authorized to provide investment services on French territory.
CAC Invest (website: www.cac-invest.com) presents itself as a French asset management company, offering French investors investments in "the top 50 large cap companies listed on the Paris stock exchange".
CAC Invest is authorised to provide neither discretionary investment management services nor any other investment service on French territory. Neither is it authorised to undertake collective investment activities in France, nor to engage in direct marketing of banking or financial services in France.
Consequently, the AMF advises investors to ignore all approaches from CAC Invest and to refrain from sharing such approaches with third parties in any form whatsoever.
Do not believe any advertising message suggesting that high returns are available without high risk. Any product suggesting a rate of return higher than the money market rate (investors may also refer to the interest rate on a savings account such as the "Livret A" in France) necessarily carries significant risk.
As a general rule, before entering into any investment in financial instruments, you should always check that the financial intermediary who is proposing or advising such investments is listed as a financial institution authorised to conduct business in France (https://www.regafi.fr). If the intermediary in question is not listed, we strongly advise you not to respond to its approaches
