Ability Corporate Advisory – serious investment advice?

Currently there is an enormous number of providers such as Ability Corporate Advisory. This means that investing in the unpredictable financial markets has never been as easy but also as uncertain as it is now. Especially because there are countless options, choosing an online platform can be time-consuming and challenging.

Especially if you want it to meet your personal investment needs. Have you already invested with Ability Corporate Advisory? Then the following aspects are important for you as an investor.

  • In online trading, one can choose from a wide range of order types.
  • A suitable address for capital investors who want to learn about share certificates, futures, binary options and cryptocurrencies is an online presence like this one.
  • Access to the international financial markets is made easier and more affordable for investors through online investing.

The following information is basic advice for investors – regardless of the platform in which you invest.

Licence – does Ability Corporate Advisory have a regulatory licence?

Both financial markets and investor protection benefit from codes of conduct and organisational accountability. Bond services firms and providers such as Ability Corporate Advisory must adhere to a wide range of standards of conduct. The same applies to their employees.

This is to prevent conflicts and associated disadvantages for investors. This includes the responsibility of the provider to inform its clients about the most significant features of a share deal before it is concluded. This applies both to the individual investor and to the capital investment itself.

Accordingly, further information is required for clients who wish to engage in highly speculative or risky transactions. Providers such as Ability Corporate Advisory have a responsibility towards their clients. This goes significantly beyond the provision of an offer or service.

Does the provider have a licence to sell investment products? It is important that you determine this. In this context, you can consult the broker check data collection of a financial supervisory authority and enter the name of the provider in the search function.

Does Ability Corporate Advisory promise enormously high profits?

Investigate how confidence-inspiring Ability Corporate Advisory’s offer is. Is the interest rate you have been offered extremely high? Can you make a lot of money with just a fewEURO? For the most part, these offers are nothing more than an illusion. Be aware that criminals are often hiding behind these tempting options.

As a rule, nothing is invested in these investment offers. Therefore, investigate how serious the offer from Ability Corporate Advisory is. Scams are often implemented by con artists in almost the same way. On the internet, investment products are advertised in a prominent place, which are flimsily profitable.

The criminals postulate that they will get lots of money. At the beginning, the investment amounts are comparatively marginal. All those who sign up are contacted by a fictitious broker or trader. The victims of the scam are then given access to an alleged investment software after paying the money.

Dubious special offers can also be seen in promises of returns that are obviously above the market average. An investor’s risk of losing funds also increases in direct proportion to the expected margin with Ability Corporate Advisory.

One way to find out about average market returns is to consult the business sections of daily newspapers or the Deutsche Bundesbank’s website.

Similarly, you should treat advice for companies with exceptional growth potential with caution. Low costs and low trading volumes make penny stocks, for example, extremely susceptible to speculation and manipulation.

Ponzi schemes: What are the dangers?

A Ponzi scheme is a type of fraud. In it, capital is collected from new investors and then used to distribute capital to the former victims. The organisers of Ponzi schemes often assure that they would invest your capital and earn huge returns without putting your assets at risk.

Nevertheless, in many Ponzi schemes, the criminals do not actually invest the money they receive. Instead, it is used to pay off people who have previously paid in. In this way, the perpetrators can keep some of the money for themselves. So pay attention to the risk-reward ratio in all investments – including Ability Corporate Advisory.

Ponzi schemes require a steady inflow of new wealth to keep running, as they have low or no real profits. Many of these structures fail when it becomes difficult to generate fresh capital investors or when a significant number of investors drop out.

If you want to invest with a broker such as Ability Corporate Advisory, you should act prudently without exception. Indicators you should look out for include:

  • Overly predictable results. Over time, investments tend to rise and fall. Any investment that consistently delivers high returns detached from market conditions should be viewed with a high degree of suspicion.
  • Investments that are not registered with financial regulators. In the vast majority of cases, Ponzi schemes are unregistered investments that are not supervised by official authorities such as Bafin.
  • Risk-free returns with minimal or no volatility. Every deposit involves a certain amount of risk, and the riskier an investment is, the more likely it is to yield a high return.
  • Is there a problem with the documentation? If there are errors on your account statement, it may be a signal that your assets are not being invested according to plan.
  • Strategies that are not easy to identify. Keep your money out of the stock market if you don’t know enough about it.

Identifying investment fraud in general

You want to invest with Ability Corporate Advisory? Then you should find out all the basic information about the company. Investment fraud is a special form of fraud. The perpetrator promises or deceives a larger group of people about a lucrative investment in the capital market.

Capital investment fraud is sanctioned with a prison sentence of up to three years or a fine in accordance with section 264a of the Criminal Code. Subsequent services and tactics can sometimes come into question as capital investment fraud:

  • Boiler room scam, a cold call seeking investors by phone call
  • Participations in companies
  • Participations in securities, funds and certificates
  • Criminals use the brand name of the provider Ability Corporate Advisory and clone the company

Anyone who has fallen for capital investment fraudsters has very often invested a lot of assets. What can you do in case of investment fraud?

  1. Revoke or contest contracts: Affected persons who have concluded a contract can revoke or contest such contracts in the case of investment fraud.
  2. Claiming damages: Persons who were not properly informed can claim damages against the investment advisor.
  3. Involve police authorities and financial supervisory authorities through legal counsel: There are collective police proceedings against some fraudulent firms in the FRG and also abroad. The criminal police is entitled to have the bank accounts of the rip-off artists blocked and the money seized. In addition, the public prosecutor’s office becomes active.
  4. Recovering assets: If payments have been made via credit card, in many cases this can be recovered by ordering a lawyer’s office to do so. In the case of bank transfers from the current account, this can in many cases be recovered by bank order.

Non-transparent exit options

Check at what time and how much money is paid out. At best, avoid long-term contracts that cannot be cancelled early or where you would suffer considerable financial losses. Conclude longer-term contracts without early termination options exclusively with providers such as Ability Corporate Advisory, whose seriousness you have no doubts about.

Even if you have the chance to waive a contract at any time or to terminate it over a certain period of time, you should be suspicious. Even if these options do exist, you are still vulnerable to financial loss. Make sure you know exactly how much capital you will get back if the investment goes wrong.

The following rule applies to transactions in securities: Before the end of the term, find out what options you have to get rid of securities. It is usually important to know whether there is a liquid market for products such as those offered by Ability Corporate Advisory.

It is possible to sell securities through a broker or a financial institution. All three options are acceptable for placing a sell order. The actual selling process is then completed via a securities exchange (e.g. Berlin, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Tradegate or Xetra) (e.g. for penny stocks).

With order supplements, the execution of the order can be guided from the outset. The sale of the shares takes place at a time and place determined by you.

Repayment of Ability Corporate Advisory does not work? Contact a law firm immediately

You should take action as soon as your suspicions are confirmed that a provider is not working conscientiously and there is a risk that the online broker will refuse to make repayments.

Apart from filing a report, which we do for our clients with the criminal investigation department, and a report to the financial authorities, the provider should also be held legally responsible if necessary.

This involves assessing the contractual claims against the financial service provider as well as any chances of compensation. In the case of financial transactions, it is also important to check whether financial institutions can be held liable in the event of an error.

Claims for damages against banks can arise, for example, in the case of money laundering or other unlawful activities. However, this must be examined depending on the facts of each case. If your provider refuses to pay out, you should therefore contact a reliable law firm immediately:

  1. Give us the names and contact details of anyone you have communicated with
  2. Discuss the facts of the case with our lawyers in an email
  3. Let us know how long the broker has been refusing to make distributions

We will provide you with a free initial assessment in connection with Ability Corporate Advisory. We will also let you know at short notice whether we believe you have a good chance of recovering your losses.
