If you are considering whether to invest money in a firm, you should first check the following:
- Does the company have authorisation from FI? Visit our Company Register.
- Is the money you have deposited in an account protected by the government deposit insurance? The deposit insurance contains a list of all of the firms and their accounts that are covered by the insurance. The list can be found at deposit insurance.
- Has FI issued any warnings about the firm? Our Investor alerts can help you avoid these firms.
- Remember, the promise of high returns often means higher risk. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
