Warnings
05/04/2017

The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Aichi BMO International, a company that offers investment services.

Aichi BMO International 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 5 April 2017.

The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial services made by Aichi BMO International and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.

Aichi BMO International uses the website www.ai-international.com, the email address info@ai‑international.com, the phone numbers +1 647 243 8020 and +81 3 4588 8167 and the fax numbers +1 647 243 8021 and +81 3 4510 3208. It claims to have its registered offices in Canada (100 King Street West, Suite 2800, Toronto, Ontario, M5X 1C9) and in Japan (16th Floor, Gran Tokyo South Tower, 1-9-2 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, 100-6640).

The firm also uses various bank accounts supposedly opened in the name of the following firms: Leiyu Trade Limited and GHY Partners Limited.

It appears, moreover, to have ties with Monex Financial and Nikko Desjardins Asset Management, two firms that have also been the subject of a warning published by the FSMA, dated 9 February 2017.

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 directly using our contact form.
