This is in view of growing offer of investments of this nature and increasingly aggressive commercial and advertising practices.

    The French supervisory authority (Autorité des Marches Financiere – AMF) has also updated the list of websites that offer binary options and investment services on forex markets without authorisation. The full list is published on the AMF website, at the following address: http://www.amf-france.org.

    CONSOB communications for investor protection on risks associated with investments in CFDs and binary options

    The Commission has published a communication for investor protection on the risks associated with new highly-speculative, risky and complex forms of financial investment such as contracts for difference (CFDs), rolling spot forex and binary options which, over the last few years, have spread more widely in the various European Union countries, including Italy.

    The communication describes the characteristics of these products and their forms of placing, which usually occurs through particularly aggressive commercial practices and misleading advertising messages. It follows that investors end up, almost always, accepting them without a real understanding and assessment in advance of the effective scope of the risks that this entails.

    The Commission stressed that almost all the subjects offering these products in our country are (a) EU investment firms or banks that operate in Italy under the freedom to provide services (that is directly from the country in which they have their registered office and on the basis of the authorisation granted by the Supervisory Authority of the home country) or (b) EU or non-EU investment firms or banks operating through a secondary office established in Italy (branch).

    On the basis of current EU legislation, CONSOB has limited direct powers of supervision and/or intervention in relation to these community intermediaries. It should also be considered by the investor that disputes on the subject of CFDs, rolling spot forex and binary options between Italian clients and EU investment firms without a branch in Italy cannot be taken to the new Arbitrator for Financial Disputes (AFD), set up recently at CONSOB.

    In Italy, it must be added, the sector is characterised by the presence of numerous abusive subjects, subjects that do not have authorisation to operate, that offer contracts over the Internet without however being subject to administrative supervision by the Supervisory Authorities.

    In brief, in its warning CONSOBtells investors to take care stressing that:

    • investment in CFDs, rolling spot forex and binary options, is not suitable for most investors;

    • this form of investment can entail losses even much greater than the capital initially invested;

    • it is necessary to proceed to begin operations only after effectively understanding and assessing all the risks connected with the investment in question;

    • it is necessary to ascertain always that the offering subject is authorised to operate in Italy, consulting the specific lists maintained by CONSOB (as regards investment firms) and by the Bank of Italy (as regards banks), which can be found on the respective institutional websites. To this end it is opportune to consult also the section “Warnings for investors” present on the CONSOB institutional website, containing the reports, coming from foreign supervisory authorities, as well as from CONSOB itself, of financial activities carried out abusively and of the subjects responsible for them.

    CONSOB Communication for investor protection on the buying and selling of diamonds

    CONSOB calls the attention of the public and of intermediaries on the buying and selling of diamonds with regard to which it has received reports from consumers’ associations.

    These concern commercial proposals made by specialised companies that operate through their websites or through bank branches. In these proposals diamonds are generally presented as a long-lasting, secure investment, with a possible prospect of a rising price over time and with a significant emphasis on the safe-haven characteristics. The purchase prices of the diamonds, determined directly by the proposer, are alleged to be higher than their market value. It is also alleged that, owing to the lack of transparency of the proposals, it is unclear what part of the price is due to the actual cost of the diamond and what instead is represented by the fees charged by the proposer companies and by the banks at the moment of the transaction.

    The rules on transparency and correctness of investment services are not in themselves applicable to the sale of diamonds or of any other tangible assets even if this occurs through the banking channel nor, in these cases, is the publication of a prospectus provided for. However, as already clarified by CONSOB (Communication no. 13038246 of 6 May 2013), the sale of a tangible asset, such as diamonds, can assume the characteristics of an offering of a financial product if elements such as promises of returns, repurchase obligations, making of profits or constraints on the enjoyment of the asset are explicitly provided for, also through related contracts.

    On the possible presence of these elements CONSOB has in progress specific investigations and has begun collaboration with the Bank of Italy and with the Italian Anti-Trust Authority.

    It is, in any case, of fundamental importance that potential purchasers be informed that these are investments that can present risks that are not immediately perceivable. CONSOB, therefore, calls the attention of the public to this circumstance and to the need to take the maximum caution in carrying out such operations and recommends always following the general rule of considering acceptance of contractual proposal only when one has an adequate understanding and only when assisted by clear and complete documentation.

    Finally, CONSOB affirms the need for the purchase bidders - in particular if they are banking operators, conscious of the objective reliability offered by their specific professional position - to make the potential buyers completely aware of the rules applicable, the contractual conditions and the cost, including fees, present in the sales transactions proposed at the branch.

Z.O.O., regarding investments of a financial nature promoted also through the website www.recyclix.com (Resolution no. 19799 of 6 December 2016).

The Commission reminds you that, under the terms of Art. 101, paragraph 2, of the said decree the distribution of all advertisements regarding public offerings of financial products other than community financial instruments is prohibited before a prospectus has been published.

    All advertisements related to the offering must consequently be considered forbidden.
