ADVISORY WARNING

Universal Investments (International) Limited

[Aka: Universal Investments Limited]

[Aka: Universal Investments (Financial Services) Limited]

[Aka: Universal FX]

Tortola, British Virgin Islands – 7 January, 2013 – The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (the “FSC”) has been made aware that a BVI business company called Universal Investments (International) Limited, which is known to be trading under the alias names of Universal Investments Limited and Universal Investments (Financial Services) Limited, and also operating as Universal FX has been offering investment products and services whilst purporting to be licensed and regulated in the British Virgin Islands.

 

As a result of the FSC’s enquiries, it would appear that this BVI business company uses the aforementioned company and trading names, and is offering its investment products and services through two websites located at www.universal-fx.com and www.universal-invest.com.

 

The BVI business company known as Universal Investments (International) Limited, and trading as Universal Investments Limited and Universal Investments (Financial Services) Limited, and operating as Universal FX has never been licensed by the FSC to carry on investment business in or from within the Territory.

 

Members of the public are therefore advised to exercise extreme caution if solicited at any time by this entity under either of its aforementioned company and trading names.   

 

The public is invited to provide the FSC with any relevant information on this, and any other questionable entities that are purportedly operating in or from within the Territory.

 

The FSC is issuing this Advisory Warning under Section 4(1)(l) of the Financial Services Commission Act, 2001.
