Peston & Sons Securities
The Belgium Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) and the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA) warn the public against the activities of Peston & Sons Securities, a company that offers investment services.
Peston & Sons Securities 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 press release published by the FSMA on 10 September 2015.
The FSMA thus strongly advises against responding to any offer of financial service made by Peston & Sons Securities and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
Peston & Sons Securities claims to have its registered office in Hong Kong at Kowloon Building, 555 Nathan Road, Yaumatei, Kowloon and uses the website www.peston-sons-securities.com.
This company is also suspected of having ties with Experia Management Group, Jones Shaw Capital Partners and Neuberger and Co. Wealth Management, companies about which the FSMA has also published a warning.
If you wish to check in general whether a proposed transaction complies with the financial regulations, please use the search function (available in Dutch and French only) on the website of the FSMA. You can also contact the FSMA (email address: firstname.lastname@example.org).
