Earlier this May, a Canadian watchdog has warned the investors’ community against dealing with Binary Tilt. The British Columbia Securities Commission has added that Binary Tilt has no registration to trade in, or advise on, securities or exchange contracts in BC. In addition, the regulator has stressed the importance of exercising extreme caution when dealing with companies that have no authority to trade or advice in BC.
Back in February, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has published a warning for investors on its website. The UK regulator aimed to caution investors’ community against dealing with one of the unauthorized firms operating on the territory of the UK. The firm under the spotlight was the entity representing itself as MaxCFD.
According to the regulatory notice, MaxCFD has been providing professional investment services to the UK residents without any authorization to do so. The UK FCA further warned that this firm has no association with any of the FCA-regulated entity. In addition, the watchdog mentioned that the first has been flagged for operating and targeting UK-based investors without an appropriate license.
