All of these entities operate websites that offer binary option trading services but none of them are appropriately licensed or authorised to provide these types of services in Australia.

ASIC is concerned that these entities are marketing their services to Australians and are misleading Australian investors into believing they are operating lawfully under Australian regulation.

Each website allows for persons, including those based in Australia, to sign up for live trading accounts. ASIC is satisfied that persons based in Australia are likely to suffer detriment as a result of being misled as to the regulatory status of these entities.

Australians should avoid dealing with any of these entities until they are appropriately licensed or authorised to operate in Australia.

ASIC has made numerous unsuccessful attempts to contact the entities that are the subject of this public warning. ASIC is satisfied that it is in the public interest to warn the public about the conduct of these entities.

This media release is a notice issued under subsection 12GLC(1) of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001.
