We (the Financial Services Authority – FSA) have published this statement today in order to warn investors against dealing with unauthorised firms.
This statement is to advise members of the public that an organisation identifying itself to UK individuals as:
Hamilton Davis Group
30 Sandland Street Holborn
Frankfurt am Main
Tel: +44 (0)845 075 5862
+44 (0)845 075 5864
Email: [email protected][email protected][email protected]
is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) to carry on a regulated activity in the UK. Regulated activities include, amongst other things, advising on investments and dealing and arranging deals in investments ('investments' include stocks and shares). We believe that the organisation may be targeting UK customers.
They don't appear to be registered as a company in Germany or Switzerland either and, if they can't make Switzerland into an adjective they should choose an easier country, like Mozambique.
