The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is warning the public against the website www.porto-immo.com
The regulator issues a warning to the public regarding the activities of PORTO IMMO SCPI and its website, which are suggesting to invest in the same named real estate investment company (SCPI) without autorisation.
The PORTO IMMO SCPI company has no authorisation to operate this SCPI activity on French territory.
The AMF recommends that investors do not respond to solicitations from persons attached to this website or this company and do not pass on the information to third parties in any form whatsoever.
Lastly, the AMF reminds investors and individuals to follow these safety guidelines before making any investment:
- no advertising materials should make you overlook the fact that high returns always involve high risk;
- learn as much as you can about the company or intermediary trying to sell you a product (authorization/certification, company history, location of head offices, etc.);
- only invest in a product you understand;
- ask yourself how, and by whom, the purchase price or selling price of the advertised product is set, and find out the precise terms and timeline for selling the product, especially in cases where the product invests in an asset class with low liquidity.
