Advisory Warning No. 19 of 2015

31 December, 2015


NKFX Holdings Inc.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands – 23 January 2017 – The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (“FSC”) has been made aware that an entity calling itself NKFX Holdings Inc., 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 appears that this entity uses the aforementioned company and trading names, and offered its products and services through its website located at 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/M/25/1385, which purports to have been issued by the FSC to NKFX Holdings Inc. on 5 September, 2002. The FSC can confirm that the certificate published was not issued by the FSC as purported and it bears a certificate no. never issued and the date of issuance was prior to the enactment of the Securities and Investment Business Act, 2010.

The FSC can confirm that NKFX Holdings Inc., has never been registered or incorporated as a company in the British Virgin Islands. NKFX Holdings 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 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 NKFX Holdings 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.
