Thornwood Financial / Long Will Limited
The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the activities of Thornwood Financial, a company that offers investment services.
Thornwood Financial 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 Thornwood Financial and against transferring money to any account number it might mention.
Thornwood Financial uses the website www.thornwoodfinancial.com, the email address email@example.com and the phone number +852 3017 6801. It claims to have registered offices in Hong Kong (102 How Ming Street 2, Landmark East, Kwun Tong Kowloon) as well as in Japan (Shinjuku Front Tower, 2-21-1 Kita Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo) and Taiwan (Taipei Century Plaza, 456-458 Xin Yi Road, Xinji, Taipei).
Thornwood Financial also uses a bank account supposedly opened in the name of the firm Long Will Limited.
It appears, moreover, to have ties with Cressman Financial Group and Red Shield Financial, two firms that have also been the subjects of a warning published by the FSMA.
The firm has already been a subject of a warning by the Hong Kong supervisory authority (SFC), dated 7 December 2016.
