The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) advises the clients of the websites www.interactiveoption.com, www.interactive-option.com, www.hellobrokers.com, www.mtxplus.com and www.pegasecapital.com to contact Pegase Capital Ltd, the owner of these websites, as soon as possible
The Cypress Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) has announced that Pegase Capital Ltd, a company under CySEC supervision that provides investment services through the websites www.interactiveoption.com, www.interactive-option.com, www.hellobrokers.com, www.mtxplus.com and www.pegasecapital.com has decided to renounce its authorisation.
The authorisation of Pegase Capital Ltd was suspended on 4 March 2016, and the company has now informed the CySEC of its decision to renounce it. The company's authorisation has therefore lapsed. The Cypriot regulator indicated on 26 May 2016 that this company was nevertheless required to honour its obligations. In particular, it must:
- Close all clients' open trading positions;
- Return to all of its clients any money owed (account balances) including any profits they made and are due for payment;
- Examine and solve all complaints before it.
Pegase Capital Ltd remains under CySEC supervision during this procedure.
Under these circumstances, the AMF recommends that investors who have opened an account on one or more of these websites immediately send a registered letter to Pegase Capital Ltd and a copy of this letter to the CySEC asking that their account(s) be closed, that they be reimbursed any balances, and, depending on the situation, putting forward a complaint.
