Devere Group - Employee
Could Devere please explain how you can employ someone in Moscow who is in a huge amount if debt in the UK which he ignores and goes on to advice people (untrained) how to invest their money? This man took money from me (£10,000) to set up in Moscow . He is a compulsive liar with no financial training at all to get the job he had to learn a script !! I have contacted Devere many times to question this and got no reply - I am looking at other options as I believe people should be aware they are putting their trust and money into the hands of a conman - Mike Tubbritt please don't trust this man - he has stole money off myself and his parents !!!!

Devere Group in Quezon City, Manila - Devere Wolfs of international investment Scams
Devere are the 'Wolfs of international investments scams'. You saw the movie Wolf of Wall St? This is DeVere Group & most of their associated companies like PIC, DeVere & Partners. They run their opperation like a well run boiler room scam. Great glossy website, nice brochures, global coverage. There are only a handful of people (if that) in each Devere office that have been with Devere over 3+ years & have any creditable financial qualifications. For the majority it's like a revolving door with 3, 6 & 9 months being pivotal moments. Most of the Devere staff will tell you out & out lies about their financial qualifications & work history to make themselves LOOK CREDIBLE. They lean a 4 page script back tonfront which is designed to emotionally break you down into handing over 50+ % of you international expat wage package. The retirement plan that you need to save so hard for, they will tell you all the money can be taken out after 12-18 months (all lies). If it's anything Devere then STAY WELL CLEAR!! Devere are viewed as an international JOKE in the financial world. Some of their Managers have personally been locked up abroad for previously running boiler room scams (fact). These are the kind of people who work in their company so you can now see where all the ingrained lies come from. Devere claim to have strategic relations with big American Banks (some of those just been fined millions of $'s for bad practice). This then gives an excuse to upfront charge you 4% to enter their 'unique invesments'. Reality is they take 10-12% for your investment, WHO DO YOU THINK PAYS FOR THAT? Nigel Green part owns a Malta based QROPS trust which they lock your UK Pension into (READ THE SMALL PRINT). It might sound like min fees... Your money will then be invested into their own underperforming white labelled funds which are almost guaranteed to go backwards. Devere write internet blogs about 'devere scams' in an attempt to deflect you from seeing the true extend of client/ex employee feedback which has worked its way on to the net.
Devere Group in Brussels, Brussels - De Vere Group with Generali Vision ***
Hello, I also found out that I was "robbed" by this Generali Vision policy. I signed in 2010 for 30 years. It has been sold to me by DeVere Group here in Belgium as a flexible product. All the time I have been told that I can take my money any time I want. The fees for surrender were never ever stated clearly. A year ago I called and asked if I can take my savings, because I thought I would move to another country from Belgium. De Vere consultant told me that it would be possible to take my money, but just keep a small value of 100 euros to be able to keep the policy without fees. A month ago I wanted to take away my money. I found out that I will lose around 80% of my investments. 1. DeVere never provided the decent calculation of the charges! 2. The consultant made me sign higher premium without warning that starting from this point their commission will be paid from the highest amount I ever paid 3. It is not possible to talk to the consultant anymore: he rarely returns the calls, does not really reply mails. 4. They switched the bank account from Belgium to the UK, so it is not even out of my control. Is there any chance to return the money?
COLD CALLS FROM SMARMY DEVERE GROUP FINANCIAL 'EXPERTS'
I'm sick and tired of receiving unsolicited 'cold calls' from the so-called 'financial experts' of the Devere group. They phone my home number, my cell phone - and each time begin in the same smarmy, condescending tone. I'm told I must know them - through colleagues or friends. All of this is pure bull. I must have had dozens of calls over the last two or three years. I've told them repeatedly that I'm not interested in their scams, to remove my phone numbers from their data base. I've told them to get lost and stronger. But back they come, like Jehovah's Witnesses, and each time it's as if it's the very first call. I'm an ex-pat Brit living in the Barcelona, so I apparently fit their target profile. Of course, all they want to know is if/where I have cash or savings so that they can liberate them from me. Today I had another call at work and I'm really pissed off. I've just blocked the number used to call me on my cell phone. When I got home I discovered that they'd phoned there several times today, too. All I can say is, if you find yourself in a similar situation, either hang up or alternatively tell them to *** OFF - and then hang up.
Devere Group - The truth of DeVere Bangkok (ex employee)
I worked for Devere (financial 'co-ordinator'). Essentially the office consists of people from Skegness who used to work in 2nd hand car sales or something equally unqualified. They promise you the world when you get a job with them. In reality you sit in an office full of arrogant *** and have to call companies claiming to be from 'expat magazine' or something equally as ridiculous in an attempt to source names to then cold call and pitch financial services products to. Names are either sourced this way or Via linked in. Either way you are given no training on products or services. Simply pressured into 'selling' by under qualified managers. Toby Williams is one of the area managers, he screws expats over then uses the money to spend on projects like his latest - 'The mansion' bangkok nightclub. The others invest in 'Levels' on Soi 11. Invest with them if you wish, just remember the fees are ridiculous and the 'consultants' don't have a clue what they're talking about. If you're *** enough to say yes then I wish you the best of luck, you're better off buying lottery tickets though. I would advise you don't invest with them, and if you are tempted by a job offer from them, don't bother. Unless you're from skegness of course...
Devere Group in Bangkok, Krung Thep - Devere scammers target Expats
High Net Worth Expats are the target focus of deVere Group, PIC, deVere & Partners, Acuma and all the other low life companies that Nigel Green is behind. Be on your guard if you are cold called by these parasites. They will tell you that you've been referred to them by one of their work colleagues. The deVere salesman will have a white shirt & stripped tie, cufflinks, black shoes & dark suit. You will spot a deVere clone in your sleep after meeting 1. They will subject you to a well versed, scripted pitch which is designed to emotionally break you down, feeling guilty that you need to save 50% of your monthly salary. deVere are NOT genuine Financial Consultants, they are nothing more than salespeople who's ultimate aim is to earn as much commission out of you as is humanly possible.
Devere Group in Johannesburg, Gauteng - DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM!!!
They are the biggest lying **** on earth. If they call you put down and run!!! If it is in South Africa or anywhere in AFRICA leave these people to go bankrupt!! They will lie and cheat their ways into taking your money. I have dealt with them on numerous occasions and me being a professional myself makes me sick to even know why these guys exist. I have met with their so called advisors and let me tell you what a bunch of idiots. If someone wants to take $1000000 from you and cannot answer questions correctly makes me wonder.
Devere Group in Hong Kong, Hong Kong - Taylor Brunswick the new devere
Members of Devere have left to start up a new company. Same scam, same people, different name. Beware. ManaginG partner Nick Smith ran The Devere Hong Kong office now runs Taylor Brunswick. Please watch out for these people, everything mentioned in previous complaints is true. Many unlicensed people are working at similar institutions. Nick Smith saw the trouble of Devere hong kong coming so left to set up his own company. He presided over 10years of mispractice at Devere and tries to distance himself from the firm he allowed to break many regulations. I hope you do not get conned by the same people.

Devere Group Hong exposed by SCMP newspaper for bad practice in Hong Kong
Having recently been contacted by the Devere Group in Hong Kong several times promoting their services I was quite surprised to see this article in the SCMP newspaper today that was exposing them for potential bad practice. The article here ( http://www.scmp.com/business/companies/article/1338248/devere-faces-down-bad-practice-claims ) suggests that Matthew Bond, David Hubbard, Tom Rogerson, Jason Ryder and Charlie Reeves (who is on another post on this site) are not HK CIB-licensed, and Edward Rice who is running the show isnt either! I had a look on the HKCIB register and none of those people are listed. I find it amazing that the regulators dont do anything to protect people like us.
