Ortner Marcus – Notes

On January 4, 2019, the Austrian Financial Market Authority published a warning notice in connection with Ortner Marcus. The warning states that Ortner Marcus is not permitted to provide commercial investment advice on financial instruments. This is because Ortner Marcus is not authorised to provide securities services requiring approval.
Statements regarding approval and monitoring by other European supervisory authorities are not to be found in the corresponding online directories. It should therefore not be assumed beyond doubt that the provider has the licenses required for its business activities.
Investors should consider these general Risks
In the current phase of low interest rates, private investors often do not know how they can invest their assets as profitably as possible and, on the other hand, safely. As a result, many providers promise the best profits and security, but in practice these do not usually stand up to scrutiny.
Accordingly, instead of the expected attractive returns, such investments always end up with the total loss of the entire capital.
An alleged advisor contacts you by telephone? He offers you the purchase of shares at a preferential price or wants to inform you about a new equity fund? But a personal contact with the employee never comes about? Such a circumstance should give investors food for thought.
Sound companies usually have the necessary licenses for financial services. Warnings from financial regulators do not mean that the activity is certainly based on investment fraud. This could only be established after a final court decision.
Nevertheless, private investors should always take such warnings seriously and carefully consider whether they nevertheless wish to invest in such companies and how they view Ortner Marcus.
Often dubious providers urge investors to conclude contracts immediately. In order to attract potential investors, some companies pay out handsome profits after an initial contact with a small capital investment. Have you made similar experiences?
Notes of conduct for Investors
Yields of six to eight percent do not sound impossible at first, but they are nevertheless well above the average value that serious, classic investments currently achieve. So here too, investors should be careful.
A sign of dubious deals can be when your broker receives a high commission for the conclusion of a deal. Here you should note that the employee has a vested interest in you investing your assets in certain products. The advice given by an agent is therefore not necessarily objective.
Some investment advisors will therefore try to convince you of an investment that is not tailored to your personal needs. There is a risk that you will be deprived of risks and that the profit prospects of the transaction will be too positive.
