List of companies operating unlawfully in Belgium

The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) has, on several occasions, warned the public against the activities of various companies that are operating unlawfully in Belgium. This list comprises all those companies that have been the subject of a warning in the course of the past four years.

The list includes:

  • companies that offer, in or from Belgium, financial services and products without complying with Belgian financial legislation (no authorization / failure to publish a prospectus / etc.);
  • companies about which, in addition to any infringements of the financial legislation and regulations the FSMA supervises, the latter has identified serious evidence of investment fraud;
  • companies behind 'recovery room' fraud.

This list cannot be considered as exhaustive.
