Advisory Warning No. 25 of 2013

12 November, 2013

ADVISORY WARNING

Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc.

operating as FX Meta Trade

Tortola, British Virgin Islands – 12 November 2013 – The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (“FSC”) has been made aware that an entity calling itself Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc., and operating as FX Meta Trade, has been offering investment products such as trading foreign exchange on margin (Forex), trading in commodities and indices, and investment brokerage services whilst purporting to be incorporated, licensed and regulated in the British Virgin Islands.

 

As a result of the FSC’s enquiries, it would appear that this entity uses the aforementioned company and trading names, and is offering its products and services through its website located at www.fxmetatrade.com and falsely claiming to be headquartered in the Territory.

Also published on this website is a reproduction of an investment business licence certificate no. SIBA/L/12/1027, which purports to have been issued by the FSC to Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc. on 5 September, 2012.

 

The FSC can confirm that Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc., which is operating under the trading name FX Meta Trade, has never been registered or incorporated as a company in the British Virgin Islands. Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc., operating under the trading name FX Meta Trade, has also never been licensed by the FSC to carry on financial services business in or from within the Territory.

 

The FSC’s investment business licence certificate no. SIBA/L/12/1027 found published on the FX Meta Trade website appears to be a scanned copy licence and incorrectly purports to have been issued to Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc. The FSC’s enquiries revealed the true licence holder of investment business licence certificate no. SIBA/L/12/1027 has no connection or affiliation whatsoever with Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc., operating under the trading name FX Meta Trade.

 

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 or trading names, or if presented with the above mentioned altered copy of the investment business licence certificate bearing the name of Meta Trade Forex & Finance Group Inc

 

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.
