Published on November 9, 2018

Following a number of reports from savers regarding the entity ECI Luxembourg and the website www.eci-luxembourg, the AMF is issuing a public warning.

ECI Luxembourg and the website www.eci-luxembourg are not authorized by the AMF ACPR to provide investment services.

Lastly, the AMF reminds investors and individuals to follow these safety guidelines before making any investment:

  • no advertising materials should make you overlook the fact that high returns always involve high risk;
  • learn as much as you can about the company or intermediary trying to sell you a product (authorization/certification, company history, location of head offices, etc.);
  • only invest in a product you understand;
  • ask yourself how, and by whom, the purchase price or selling price of the advertised product is set, and find out the precise terms and timeline for selling the product, especially in cases where the product invests in an asset class with low liquidity.

The AMF is an independent public authority responsible for ensuring that savings invested in financial products are protected, that investors are provided with adequate information and supervising the orderly operation of markets. Visit our website
