The Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC) is issuing this warning to the public regarding http://fernpoolholdings.com/
Following receipt of an enquiry, the GFSC reviewed statements on a website in which it claims that it “started out as a small independent insurance broker” and now offers “underwriting, investment broking and tax services”.
The Company’s brochure advertises services such as:
• Asset Management
• Investment Advisory
• Initial Public Offerings
• Initial Coin Offerings
The website appears to be making use of the details of a Gibraltar Registered entity, Fernpool Holdings Ltd (Fernpool).
Fernpool is not regulated, registered or otherwise authorised by the GFSC, nor is an application pending for authorisation, to carry the activities it states in the website.
The GFSC therefore urges the public to exercise appropriate caution in respect of any marketing material or offerings received in relation to the above mentioned website, or claiming to be Fernpool.
People are able to verify whether a firm is licensed by the GFSC in Gibraltar, by checking our Regulated Entities section here.
Any persons who are already involved in any dealings with the above entity and have concerns, should contact our Financial Crime team on +350 200 40283 or by selecting Financial Crime on our Contact Us page.
