News releases AMF: 2019

The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is warning the public against the website www.parel-gestion.net

Published on March 13, 2019

The regulator issues a warning to the public regarding the activities of the website www.parel-gestion.net, which is proposing investments without autorisation and making fraudulent use of the name of Parel SA.

The website www.parel-gestion.net suggests that individual investors invest especially in precious metals. However, this proposal, that involves intermediation in miscellaneous assets, does not have any registration number delivered by the AMF.
Morever, the website makes fraudulent use of the name of the investment company Parel SA.

The AMF recommends that investors do not respond to solicitations from persons attached to this website and do not pass on the information to third parties in any form whatsoever.

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.
