Lloyd’s has issued a consumer alert regarding a firm styling itself as FCV Broker which on its website www.fcvbroker.com offers various “wealth management services” which include financial and retirement planning.
The firm states that it is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) with registration number 571262, however the FSA has confirmed that this is an unauthorised firm.
Firm reference number 571262 is that of F.C.V. Broker srl, an entity domiciled and regulated in Italy and an FSA EEA authorised Firm.
The genuine firm is registered with Lloyd’s as an open market correspondent and there is no association whatsoever between the Italian broker F.C.V. Broker srl and the unauthorised UK entity FCV Broker.
Anyone with concerns should call the FSA’s consumer contact centre.
