Advisory Warning No. 21 of 2015

31 December, 2015

ADVISORY WARNING

St. World Trade Inc.

The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (“FSC”) has been made aware that an entity calling itself St. World Trade Inc., has been offering investment products such as hedging, markets arbitrage, risk management and speculation 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 offered its products and services through its website located at https://www.tradingbanks.com/ and falsely claiming to be headquartered in the Territory.

 

The FSC can confirm that St. World Trade Inc., has never been registered or incorporated as a company in the British Virgin Islands. St. World Trade Inc., has also never been licensed by the FSC to carry on financial services business in or from within the Territory.

 

Members of the public are therefore advised to exercise extreme caution if solicited at any time by or conducting any business with St. World Trade 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.
