DeVere Group- overview

Having attended the "training course" in Malta (easily passed), there is a lot of information they don't tell you until you actually get your contract in Malta- i.e. office costs, coordinator costs. On the training course I was on I overheard the recruiters being told not to book anyone with an accent or a foreign name. The company does provide a platform for individuals to work off and make money- if you're good that is and can put up with certain attitudes. Needless to say I did not take up the job when I got home- I was only an energy sales adviser to begin with. Had a lovely time in Malta though.

Devere Group in Los Angeles, California - DeVere beware Wilson writing Scam

De Vere should beware of ****** ****** ex AES.  He is obsessed by negative blogs. He gets his high from writing them. Wilson has now moved back to London where he feels safe to write his negative material.  ****** ****** is ex Guardian, ex AES and soon to be ex deVere. ****** ******'s brother is a recruiter, James Wilson.  ****** ****** used to write negative blogs against Guardian Wealth Management now he can't stop himself writing about everyone.  ****** writes negative blogs for highs now. ****** ****** is a scam SEO artist. He can make anyone look bad. Lots of people know the truth about him and in the end his family will suffer. He makes others suffer what does he think will happen to him in the end. Wilson's are leaches. They just suck people dry.  ****** ****** used to take drugs for highs now he gets his highs from writing negative ***. Beware of the ******'s.

Devere Group in Conyers, Georgia - DeVere Cold Calling Scam Revealed

Here are the cold calling tricks I was taught by devere.  If you are Xing or Linked-in or any networking site, you're in big trouble. This is a common place to obtain names. If I had an appointment with you, I would cross reference your name on Facebook and other networking sites before our meeting. Then take down a few names of people that you know or are connected to.  Innocently, in the meeting with you, I would ask if you know 'so and so' (of course you do!). You feel relaxed because you think I know one of your friends. I don't of course, I only wrote their names down an hour ago. "Great, I know him too, can I mention your name when I call him." you reply. "Of course!"  Next day. Ring ring. "Hi, I was given your name by so and so, he said you would be very interested in talking to me about blah blah!" Bingo, you have unwittingly recommended me!   Your office number is 0800 667000. So, let's call 0800 667001/002/003/004 etc, etc. Logging into the extension numbers is easy. Most major companies have a telephone system that attaches the extension numbers onto the end of the main number. I would stay late and wait until you had all left your office and then call the HO number but add a couple of extra number on the end and keep dialling until I got the voicemails and then I hear: "Hi, this is David Davies, senior auditor. Sorry I can't get to the phone right now."  Next day: Ring Ring. "Oh Hi David, I was given your name by one of your colleges who is a client of mine, he said you would be interested in talking to me about….blah blah blah." You assume, as I have your direct dial and know your name you really were referred!  I have many many more of these, but you get the idea. This is how I sold a load of dodgy policies to you guys but at the end of the day if you had bothered to do your research on devere you would never have let me in the office, so more fool you.

Devere Group - Devere IFA's based in Malta office unregulated!!

Consultants based in the Malta office do business from Malta and claim they are calling from Spain What the hel is this company playing at? Seriously NIgel green needs to take a long hard lok at this mess of a company he is running. The office is basic and they do not own any buildings, the just rent out shoddy lock ups and say they have the biggest offshore financial company in the world. It's all smoke and mirrors. Terrible company to to business with or work for. To not go to a London preview if you to not have an English name as you will be discriminated against!

Devere Group in London, England - Devere?? Kiss my derriere!!!

Just wanted to say thank you to all those who posted their comments on this despicable company. You all saved my life savings! They're kicking about in Dubai now, ripping of British expats who don't know better. Some tw@t from the company cold called me yesterday and won't tell me where they got my number from. I had the good sense to not get sucked into their fancy website and it took only 15mins of online research to figure out they're 100% scammers. Feel sorry for the poor people they have in they're grasps and that's employees and clients alike. Very few of their employees have any financial background.if you check the profile of the employees on LinkedIn. It's laughable when you see most of them worked as sales persons or model agencies. Then you only need go on YouTube and check out BBC Who stole my pension and , of course, websites like this one... then you go "Woaaah!!" I'm sure if I was willing to waste any more time on this useless company, I'd unearth more. I actually told the tw@t that and he said he'd rather spend "time can be better spent servicing our many clients who have benefited from the exceptional services we provide". He'll be spending a lot of time doing nothing as I don't believe any such happy client exists. I wouldn't touch DeVere with a barge pole. The only people making the money in that company are the swindling director and employees without a conscience. RUN AS FAR AWAY FROM AS POSSIBLE!!!!!

Devere Group in Torrance, California - Devere Training Course-OMG!!!

deVere (via Nigel Green, the CEO, Steven Luckett, the global recruitment director and others) are professional scam artists specializing in ripping British expats off as well as draining their own financial consultants out of money and sexually abusing their female professionals. Currently they are feverishly recruiting young professionals in Spain, Portugal, Ireland and other western European countries where as a result of the financial crisis many have lost their jobs, but still have some savings left in order pay these criminals tribute for being f****d over. A year ago my friend was cheated out of $ 20 000 after being promised riches (no less than GBP 120 000 a year!!) and a splendid career. During a week-long deVere financial consultants' training course in Malta at the end of which (according to the excited cries of Steven Luckett, hopping around madly with patched up trousers at deVere presentation) participants had to stand an official independent financial adviser exam, she was approached by one of deVere representatives with an open offer to 'treat his male parts', in exchange for them 'making sure she got promoted'. As she refused, the representative suggested later on on the course that she 'lacked necessary sales skills' so to fail her deliberately and get rid of a living stain on his reputation. As it turned out, she would have been luckier to have failed the course than having been selected for the position of a financial consultant. Still not convinced? Read on. DeVere consultants do NOT get 120 000 a year and they do NOT get a professional IFA qualification. This is just a bait for the gullible who believe Steven Luckett, Nigel Green & Co. are telling the truth just because they cannot IMAGINE being fooled by a company with a beautiful website and (seemingly) a lot of connections, in the most outrageous way. After having passed the 'course', she had to spend another three weeks in Malta at her own cost, because Steven Luckett's announcement that 'deVere will arrange you everything, including visas and employment permits!' turned out to be an outward scam. After finally getting the visa on her own and moving to the destination country, she also discovered that she had to 'contribute' towards their office, heating, coffee, rubbish, toilet paper etc. costs. There were no computers at the office as they could not afford to pay for the Internet!!! Furthermore, please note: 'contribute' as it is understood in deVere, means to pay your share off completely or not get any commission. Phone bills she had to cover on her own - quite a feat if cold-calling and trying to attract angry for being pestered people takes you 95% of your working time, as it 'is not up to the company to give you leads' (what did we train you for?!). After having lived for 3 MONTHS on her own and her parents' money, it finally dawned to her that the well-deserved commission was due to her at this rate no sooner than by 2050. She quit the company and is a living proof that a loss of $20 000 and a sore *ss is all you can get from these beggared scammers, sexual predators who have apparently come from a slum. Be on your guard, please beware of these parasites.

Devere Group in Torrance, California - Devere-Disgrace to Industry

Devere are an absolute disgrace to genuine IFA Brokers globally. They bring the offshore market and genuine IFA's a bad name. Two high level DeVere Directors recently resigned under a close of controversy, Simon Pratt (Devere director on run from HK tax authorities) & Spencer Lodge who reneged on his bid at a charity auction in connection with Sir Elton John's aids foundation. This is the tip of the iceberg with Nigel Green being caught like the rabbit it the head lights himself by BBC Panorama documentary 'who stole my pension'. All about the various dubious companies Nigel Green fronts or is behind, their thieving, lying, cheating underhand ways & mechanics. Nice glossy website does wonders these days to impress!!! Look at what's behind it, do your research before you commit to anything deVere as you'll probably only regret it.

I have been a financial adviser since 1989 and have had the privelage to work with many reputable companies. This lot are a disgrace to the industry. They constantly contact me offering all sorts of positions and benefits in malta and other countries ! I ask one simple question everytime ! " who pays for the flight & accommodation ? Guess what ? Speaks volumes ! Never worked for them; never will ! SIPPS is their next big *** ! Did you know that the Suez canal was being widened? Yes is the answer !We all do ! Many positives to be gained but De Vere are not worth the slightest consideration in my opinon.You will lose your money!

DeVere Group Job Offer - Honest feedback please

I have been offered a job with deVere Group in the UAE. I have to soon go for training in Malta then go to to the a country I can choose. It seems a great company but there is a lot of negativity on these forums. I dont have a lot of money and would be leaving a job and my family to go. The income projections seem fantastic and I liked Mr Nigel Green when I met him in London earlier this year. Seems a great opportunity so would like to hear from current or ex-employees as to the real situation.
