The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of MetaInvesting, a company that offers investments without complying with Belgian financial legislation.

MetaInvesting is not allowed to provide banking and/or investment services in or from Belgium.

Furthermore, since 18 August 2016, no investment firm (authorized or not) is permitted to distribute actively, within the territory of Belgium, binary options or certain other derivative instruments. Specifically, the instruments concerned are derivatives whose maturity is less than one hour and/or that directly or indirectly use leverage (including forex derivatives and CFDs).

The FSMA therefore strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial service made by MetaInvesting and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.

The FSMA also reminds the public that in the vast majority of cases, persons who invest in firms that do not hold the requisite authorization never recover the sums invested. These are cases of investment fraud.

MetaInvesting uses the website and the following contact details:

Address: Old Brompton Road Suite 50, 2 SW7 3DQ Londen, United Kingdom

MetaInvesting has already been the subject of a warning by the supervisory authority of Ontario (OSC).
