AOT Europe - Waarschuwing FCA UK - 2012-Jun-08

Financial Services Authority


We (the Financial Services Authority – FSA) have published this statement today in order to
warn investors against dealing with unauthorised firms.

This statement is to advise members of the public that an organisation identifying itself to UK
citizens as:

AOT Europe (Clone of previously FSA EEA Authorised firm)
Camomile Court
23 Camomile Street
Tel: 020 3608 1213
Fax: 020 3608 1214

is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) to carry on a
regulated activity in the UK. Regulated activities include, amongst other things, advising on
investments and dealing and arranging deals in investments ('investments' include stocks and
shares). We believe that the organisation may be targeting UK customers.

This entity is using the details of a previously FSA EEA Authorised firm. The following
individual has no association whatsoever with the organisation described above that is
identifying itself as AOT Europe:
AOT Stock Specialist BV
FSA Firm Registration Number: 206711
Autoriteit Financiële Markten(AFM), Netherlands: firm is not currently
registered or licensed with the AFM.

What does this mean for you?
If you are an investor, you should be aware that the Financial Ombudsman Service and the
Financial Services Compensation Scheme are not available if you deal with an unauthorised
company or individual.
