IOSCO Investor Alerts Portal

IOSCO Investor Alerts Portal comprising information provided by IOSCO members on a voluntary basis within IOSCO's website, referring to warnings on entities which are not authorized to provide investment services within or from the relevant jurisdictions.

The scope of the Investor Alerts Portal refers to alerts and warnings issued by IOSCO members about firms which are not authorized to provide investment services in the jurisdiction which issued the alert or warning. Some of the alerts or warnings are about unauthorized firms using names similar to those of authorized firms or about unauthorized firms falsely claiming to be associated with authorized firms. The alerts and warnings included in the portal's list are provided by IOSCO members on a voluntary basis. The contents of the alerts and warnings are the responsibility of the IOSCO member which issues them.

The Investor Alerts Portal, which has been operational since 29 July 2010, is administered by the IOSCO General Secretariat. The Portal is accessible through the public area of IOSCO's website (http://www.iosco.org/investor_alerts/), and only IOSCO members are able to post alerts on the Portal through the members area of IOSCO's website.
