Devere Group in Moscow, Moscow - Scammers!
I'm a brit working in Moscow, I was called on my private mobile number, I don't usually have this listed, by someone from DVP (this is the way they get around saying Devere, as I found out some many calls later!) he sounded like he was reading from a script but after a brief and boring intro he asked if I was free to meet his boss later that week. I asked why he wanted to see me as the script hadn't made it clear. He was very abrupt and said it would all be clear when the meeting was set. I was getting angry at this point and hung up. In the next 2 months i must have been called at least 7 times, the caller used some unsavory tactics, such as a call at gone 9-15pm when I was out entertaining clients.Eventually, i decided to check them out and I can't really say I was surprised to find all these similar negative comments on here. I did find a moscow office number for them and it's 495 258 9671Keep up the good work and don't use this company. EVER!

Devere Group in Hong Kong, Hong Kong - Illegal Immigrant worker, Unlicensed Advisor, Charlie Reeves
I have been based in the Asia pacific region for a quite a while now and I have sat down with quite a few independent financial advisors.The cherry on the cake came when I agreed to sit down with one of DeVere's financial advisors in Hong Kong. The advisor in question Charlie Reeves clearly had no idea what he was talking about?. When asking him about several fees and returns on products I later found out that the estimates given to me were nowhere close to reality:. I called Generali to enquire about his "reputation" in Hong Kong and they had never even heard of him,. I checked with the CIB (Confederation of Insurance Brokers) and it turns out he was not registered with them either yet he mentioned being regulated in HK|. He left me with some information on a structured note?. I was appalled just by the fact that a company would send someone like that to pitch their products,. Furthermore how does the Hong Kong government allow this to happen? Also beware of DeVere after considerate research it turns out they are known worldwide for their pushy sales tactics and high commission earnings,. They have been kicked out of Singapore and several other countries:. It is very important to ask them for their CIB registration number and HK ID card/number in order to avoid further confusion when dealing with this company.

Devere Group - Simon Pratt & Nigel hold hands again
The deVere Group, the world Scammers in international financial consultancy, were delighted to announce that it is to establish a new regional presence in the Cayman Islands and is days away from opening its doors to prospective clients living in the region. Be warned if you are a British expat with lots of money... It seems Nigel Green and Simon Pratt are best buddies again, even though Simon Pratt is currently being hunted by Hong Kong authorities for unpaid tax bills. Simon Pratt hot footed it to Canada because they have no extradition treaty with the chinks. He had to lay low for a year or two until the dust settled but yes folks he's now back in the fold! Interestingly though, looking at Cayman Islands this place is strategically place along a major cocaine route (I did hear the boys were a little partial).
Devere Group in Zurich, Zurich - Loss of dignity as an advisor
As a complete novice to finance but driven by money I was advised by a friend to look into devere. i went to their recruitment day at knightsbridge london and after going on a course for 3 days in malta i was a financial consultant. the whole thing was a farce and a ***, they kept emphasising that as long as you have the hunger and desire to make money competence would come with time. i'd like to reserve details of my experiences with devere but if you want sound financial advice try any other financial advisory company but devere.
Devere Group - WEALTH MANAGER
STRUCTURED NOTE IS A FAVOURITE DEVERE SELL. A HUGE ENTRY FEE OF 4% REALLY DEPLETES THE RETURN ON THIS TYPE OF INVESTMENT.THIS ENTRY FEE IS ALL COMMISSION. 2% FOR DEVERE,2% FOR THE SALESMAN. I CALL HIM A SALESMAN BECAUSE HE IS "FLOGGING' A POLICY. BUT THE customer PAYS HIS CASH BUT NEVER GETS A POLICY DOCUMENT. AND WILL NEVER GET A DOCUMENT OF OWNERSHIP. IF YOU HAVE BEEN UNLUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE BOUGHT ONE OF THESE "NOTES" THEN I ASK YOU WHERE IS THE PROOF OF YOUR INVESTMENT??? THE ANSWER IS "YOU DONT HAVE ONE" YOU HAVE PURCHASED A BAD INVESTMENT THAT YOU CANNOT PROVE THAT YOU OWN IT.
Devere Group - What happened to the Devere United Asset Management Fund
This is not a complaint but an enquiry. Does anyone know why Devere have suspended the UAM Fund? There seems to be no information and the website www.uam-sarl.com says nothing. I know that they are now pushing a new fund to clients (as i received their global mail shot) called the Titanium Advisers Private Equity Fund of which there is no information at all on the web bar a cheaply designed web portal that funnily enough has a similar layout and appearance as the UAM site. Interestingly the UAM fund closed last month and the Titanum Fund is brand new with only back tested results to show for. Did they dump the UAM fund to open Titanium??? Does anyone have any thoughts or can a Devere employee shed some light on this?
Devere Group - Panarama Documentry @
To get the real picture about deVere Group look at this Youtube link Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rS36OlVCY5s Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gajTHiHW8iA deVere do not want you to see this, so they set up deVere You Tube account to try and deflect the adverse publicity they are getting. Be very careful if you are dealing with devere at any level. Most of their sales people have no qualifications at all. They will try to put your life savings into Nigel Greens own funds that have abysmal track record but they take fat upfront commissions. Devere will charge you 4% up front on any of their Structured Notes.

Devere Group - Impossible to contact, 50% loss
My wife was contacted by an agent on the recommendation of a friend when she took her first expat contract. She then moved and found it impossible to receive further advice from the company, via e-mail, telephone or personally. We found that her funds had been frozen and yet we had no way to divert future payments to any alternative fund.After moving country again she did manage to contact somebody who reviewed her file but then wasn't heard from again. By this time we had cancelled the bank payments so no more money was going in. A new advisor contacted us trying to sell a new 'life insurance' policy but was not helpful at all trying to do something with the funds already invested. Eventually the invested funds became available again (the trading stop must have been removed, I never found what the problem was) so we went direct to the fund brokers and after much paperwork closed it all down with a 50% loss.The original friend has maintained an investment with them and he says it is OK. Maybe he has been lucky in staying in one place and the agent has been trustworthy and done regular reviews. Our experience with the global group has been quite the opposite.
