Nikko Desjardins Asset Management / Xieze International Trading Limited / Gradual Investments Limited
The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Nikko Desjardins Asset Management, a company that offers investment services.
Nikko Desjardins Asset Management is not an authorized investment firm in Belgium. It is therefore not allowed to provide investment services in or from Belgium.
Moreover, according to the information available to the FSMA, the activities proposed could be of a fraudulent nature, i.e. boiler room fraud. More information on this form of fraud is available in the general warning published by the FSMA on 9 February 2017.
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial services made by Nikko Desjardins Asset Management and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
Nikko Desjardins Asset Management uses the www.nikkoholdings.com, the email addresses firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and the phone numbers +1 647 694 5090 and +81 3 4579 3242. It claims to have its registered offices in Canada (200 Front Street West, Simcoe Place Suite 2602, Toronto, Ontario, 5V 3K2) and in Japan (20th Floor Shinagawa, 1 Chome-2-70, Minato, Tokyo 108-0075).
The firm also uses various bank accounts supposedly opened in the name of the following companies: Xieze International Trading Limited and Gradual Investments Limited.
It also appears to have ties with Monex Financial / Monex BMO Securities, a firm that has also been the subject of a warning published by the FSMA.
Nikko Desjardins Asset Management has already been the subject of warnings by the supervisory authorities of Sweden (Finanstilsynet), Hong Kong (SFC) and Japan (FSA), published in December 2016.
