Finanstilsynet (The Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway) warns against investment offers promoted by Schwarz & Stien Partners
Finanstilsynet has been informed that Schwarz & Stien Partners (address: Via dei Leutari 21. Rome, Italy 00186 and Hong Kong) has approached Norwegian investors offering investment services. The company also offers services from a website http://schwarz-stien.com/.
Finanstilsynet wishes to make it clear that Schwarz & Stien Partners is not authorised to provide investment services in Norway, and therefore lacks the licence required under Norwegian law. The company is consequently not subject to Finanstilsynet’s supervisory oversight, nor has Finanstilsynet approved the services offered by the company. Finanstilsynet therefore recommends investors not to enter into agreements with or transfer assets to Schwarz & Stien Partners.
Finanstilsynet's registry gives details of all companies authorised to offer investment services in Norway. A list (not complete) of companies operating in the market without a licence can be found on Finanstilsynet's website.
