The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of AEG Financial, a company that offers investment services.
AEG Financial is not an authorized investment firm in Belgium. It is therefore not allowed to provide investment services in or from Belgium.
Moreover, according to the information available to the FSMA, the activities proposed could be of a fraudulent nature, i.e. boiler room fraud. More information on this form of fraud is available in the general warning published by the FSMA on 16 December 2015.
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial service made by AEG Financial and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
AEG Financial claims to have its registered office in Hong Kong, International Commerce Centre, 1 Austin Road, West Kowloon, Central. It uses the website www.aegfinancial.com and uses a bank account purportedly opened in the name of the company Pro-Nice Limited.
This company is also suspected of having ties with Belmont Financial Group, a company about which the FSMA has also published a warning.
If you wish to check in general whether a proposed transaction complies with the financial regulations, please use the search function (available in Dutch and French only) on the website of the FSMA. You can also contact the FSMA (email address: firstname.lastname@example.org).
