The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Trade Invest 90, a company that offers binary options without complying with Belgian financial legislation.
Trade Invest 90 is not allowed to provide banking and/or investment services in or from Belgium.
Since 18 August 2016, no investment firm (authorized or not) is permitted actively to distribute, within the territory of Belgium, 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 Trade Invest 90 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.
Trade Invest 90 uses the website www.tradeinvest90.com and the following coordinates:

Trade Invest 90 sends e-mails with the goal to encourage Belgian consumers to invest in binary options. In the e-mails they use the name and logo of the journal ‘De Standaard’ with the name ‘De Standaard Middag Update’. The e-mails are set up like they have been send from the journal ‘De Standaard’. But that isn’t the case.
