The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Swiss Capital Invest, a company that offers highly risky investment instruments in Belgium without complying with Belgian financial legislation.
Swiss Capital Invest is not an authorized investment firm or credit institution in Belgium. It is therefore not allowed to provide banking and/or investment services in or from Belgium.
Furthermore, the FSMA reminds the public that since 18 August 2016, no investment firm (authorized or not) is permitted actively to distribute, within the territory of Belgium, via an electronic trading system, binary options or any other derivative instruments whose maturity is less than one hour and/or that directly or indirectly use leverage (including forex derivatives and CFDs).
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial services made by Swiss Capital Invest 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.
Swiss Capital Invest uses the website www.swiss-capitalinvest.com, the email address support@swiss‑capitalinvest.com and the telephone number +33 (0)9 75 18 99 89.
Besides the name Swiss Capital Invest, the website www.swiss-capitalinvest.com also uses the names Swiss Capitalinvest and Swiss-CapitalInvest interchangeably.
The firm also uses a bank account supposedly opened in the name of Atlasreference Unipessoal LDA.
The website www.swiss-capitalinvest.com also appears on the "blacklist of sites not authorized to offer binary options" published by the French supervisory authority (AMF).
