Mount Equity Group Experience

Mount Equity Group’s website states that performance, principles and people are the inseparable elements of the company’s success. Accordingly, providing a consistently high level of service is a priority for Mount Equity Group. Mount Equity Group therefore emphasises the quality of its people and a personal and ethical approach.

In addition, most of the investment advisors working at Mount Equity Group have been working with the provider for more than a decade, including some of the founding team. Furthermore, Mount Equity Group believes in following the winners, not the crowd, which is why the best asset managers are free from fear of doing things differently.

That is why Mount Equity Group analysts have the conviction to create targeted recommendation lists. In addition, according to Mount Equity Group, excessive diversification and frequent trading would incur costs that would reduce returns.

For this reason, Mount Equity Group emphasises transparency and prefers recommendations that are understandable for clients.

Domain Information

Each web server is identified by a unique numeric code. This so-called IP address enables a browser to target specific hosts in order to retrieve Internet pages. Our lawyers have found out the information for the provider on 07.12.2021 with the following result: Domain Name:

Registry domain ID: 2559918904_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN Registrar WHOIS Server: Registrar URL: Updated Date: 2020-09-15T15:07:24Z Creation Date: 2020-09-15T10:07:27Z Registrar Registration Expiration Date: 2022-09-15T10:07:27Z Registrar:, LLC

Can I find an imprint?

In Germany, according to §5 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), there are basic obligations to provide an imprint. This obligation to “identify the provider” applies to all commercially operated sites on the net. This information is intended to inform the user of a WWW page who he or she is dealing with.

In the course of this, the addressable postal address of the website owner also plays a role if legal claims are to be enforced against him. Another decisive factor is the fact that the provision of an imprint also applies to foreign companies that pursue their commercial activities in Germany.

No legally binding imprint could be found on the provider’s website in December 2021.


Naming the responsible actors is a sign of transparency. At the time of writing, there are no statements on the Mount Equity Group website regarding the persons responsible for the subject matter.

If problems ever arise, a large distance between the provider and the investor can cause complications in clarifying them. In principle, investors within the EU have a little more legal certainty and more opportunities to enforce their claims – also and especially in the case of losses – if necessary with the help of legal assistance.

Is the provider in Europe legitimised by a financial supervisory authority?

Information on authorisation and supervision by a European governmental financial supervisory authority such as the CMVM (Portugal), the AMF (France), the FI (Sweden) or the FMA (Austria) cannot be found on the website of the financial services provider in December 2021.

For this reason, investors should not necessarily assume that the company is in possession of the obligatory authorisations required for economic activities in the European Economic Area.

Warnings published by financial authorities regarding Mount Equity Group

Warnings are periodically issued by financial supervisory authorities and law firms. However, it cannot always be assumed that this is a case of investment fraud. In December 2021, our law firm had not received any official warnings from European supervisory authorities on the subject of Mount Equity Group.

Excursus: Online trading as a popular fraud scheme

A number of online providers advertise how easy it is to trade profitably and achieve handsome surpluses. This is accompanied on the providers’ websites by suitably positive and light-hearted imagery. Nevertheless, one is well advised to bear in mind that one can also encounter a dubious service provider with fraudulent intentions.

Our law firm is aware of several cases of rip-offs on the internet where investors have set up an account with an online provider in good faith, deposited their capital and supposedly executed various trades.

Nevertheless, they fell for an organised internet fraud, because although they saw high account balances and pretended surpluses, these clients never received a payout. Unfortunately, the problem is more widespread than one might think.

Because more and more frequently, inclined investors come across websites on the Internet where they are promised fast money and exceptionally high-yield investment products.

In addition, the creators of such websites invest a lot of time and financial resources in a professional external presentation that gives the impression of a company that inspires confidence. This is what makes it so difficult for most investors to register early enough that it is not an honest offer but a scam.

What do you do if you lose money?

Have you lost capital while investing? In this case, you should take active action. First of all, you should refrain from making additional transfers. In addition, it is advisable to ask the financial provider about the reasons for the losses and to find out what options are available to recover the lost deposit.
