Devere Group - Breaking the law
I was sold a Generalli Vision product in the UAE in 2011 which includes an insurance element. At this time Deverre (PIC) were not licensed to sell insurance products in the UAE and hence I feel this sale should be null and void under UAE. I have written to both Deverre and Generalli on this matter but neither has had the courtesy to respond. I just wanted to warn others the extent this company will go to to make commission. I have consulted with my legal advisors and am told that the company breached both Articles 24 and 26 of Federal Law No 6 of 2007. I would be interested if they would respond on here.
Devere Group - Bad QROPS Advice Cost Me $50,000
While working in Germany I was contacted by DeVeere Group who sold me on the benefits of a QROPS in Malta. At the time my country of residence was the USA where I am a green card holder. The move of my UK company pension to a Malta plan has cost me nearly $50,000 in taxes and fees paid to the USA Inland Revenue Service. As others have stated, as my account was under 100,000 GBP and I should never have been advised to move the account. What's worse is that now I am back in the USA, DeVeere Germany won't talk to me and DeVeere USA will only talk to me if I pay them more money.
Follow up to review #1019544; Devere Group - Poor plan performance, wish I'd never heard of Devere.
Many thanks for your kind response to my initial review team Devere. Indeed, it would appear that you have been transparent in stating that one of your advisors has been in contact with me, however, I've asked for the same advisor to disclose all interests that Devere have now or previously held with my plan provider, STM Malta so as to rule out any potential conflict of interest, but I suspect that if the Malta Financial Services Authority cannot extract this information out of you guys, I guess I've not no chance.... I've also asked the same advisor to be transparent in sharing the commission Devere have received in connection with my interests, but again, no response. So team Devere, lets see some transparency...
Devere Group - Poor plan performance, wish I'd never heard of Devere
At my recent policy valuation review, I was advised that my small pot plan was performing well, yet on closer inspection my plan is still worth considerably less than first invested and only after my complaining have Devere offered to review performance and look at alternative strategies. If I could turn back the clock, I'd never have listened to these guys. Don't listen to the Devere bulls$it about market volatility and long term strategy, for small investors such as I, keep your money under your mattress because the only parties that make money from my experience, are everyone but the investor. Thanks for nothing Devere Group
Devere Group - USE COLLECTIVE POWER TO STOP DEVERE IN SWITZERLAND
I feel like I have been raped by Devere. The advisor William Offen was indeed friendly and had all the right words and illustration and convinced me to change my UK pension into a QROPS pension. In fact he was nothing more than a confidence trickster. The low risk investment he claimed was needed for access for the annual pension, was in fact a high risk and not only that ,it appears that Nigel Green of Devere had his hand in the investment fund ( insider trading). My pension investment is frozen (im talking in several £100’000 capital)and is in the courts of Guernsey, but it is hard to say how long it will take to release this funds. In the meantime I have lost my annual pension. Devere claim, that they are regulated by PolyReg in Switzerland, but PolyReg only refer you to Swiss lawyers and they want several thousand up front before they even talk to you. On top of that I have not found one that actually knows what a QROPS pension is. If you have a similar situation, I feel collectively we could make Devere pay.
Devere Group Abu Dhabi- I have lost nearly AED 100,000 as a result of this companies negligence.
Cheques given to them to pass on to my Financial account were not paid. The company contacted them and told them that payments were missing from my account and gave 90 days for money to be paid, and Devere failed to inform me of this. They informed me much later, and as a result my account was surrendered. The company my account was with have told me they contacted Devere several times about my account, and that Devere did not get back to them. Devere's negligence has caused us to lose nearly AED 100,000 of our hard earned money! I have complained, and all they can say is that there is nothing they can do about it. They do not deny that they failed to do their job as brokers, yet they do not offer any compensation for our loss. This has been a very sad and painful experience!
Devere Group in Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur - Not Happy at all
Devere Advisor are the less professional i have ever seen, the subscription i made through this agency end up being a total lost of money. i was promised a 10% growth each year, after 6 year the plan value is lower of 5000USD than my total investment. when i look at closely, i found out that i never made any profit since i started investing in that plan. if i decide to surrender now, my expectation was to get my money back, at least what is remaining, instead, i will be loosing ~15000USD. those are the kind of things Devere Advisor never tell you when approaching you. for the last 4 years, none of the adviser never called me to advise when they said they will always be calling me or following up on my investment and advise on options. They are very bad, never even accept being approached by them.
Devere Group - Annulled Licence
The operation run by this firm in Cyprus was via their office in Belgium. That had its licenced annulled and thus the Cyprus operation closed. Some of the unqualified staff moved to India, UAE and other unregulated jurisdictions. Others stayed in Cyprus moving into other salesman roles, using the sales tactics learnt during their week long Malta training course. Normal story, high front loaded commissions with the promise of great returns. Fleece the consumer - who cares about them! After the operation was unlicensed they still brought over the next boat load of cowboys, one of whom was a used car salesman a month before.
Devere Group - Bad, Worse, Devere Shanghai
First the guys are trying to sell you the products where they can get the highest commission (25 years retirement plan) and not listen to the customer needs. Second, some fonds are frozen and I can't sell them since 5 months already - but I need the money now for finacning my house for the family. Excuses here and excuses there, bla, bla, bla. No understanding for the mistakes they have done. Postpone the problem again and again - "next month, we will review in December". Bad service, bad communication, bad performance. Never ever again Devere....... Thank you for this great service and support it confirms finally what I was expecting in the beginning. Morten Guba, Shanghai
Devere Group Investment Program Review
I have no experience of deVere group products and financial management, only the frustrating experience of being constantly bugged by sales people trying to sell me services despite telling them I'm not interested. They call my office and don't leave the company name, or say it's a private matter from my days of working with them in the U.K. I have no idea if they can manage finances but my experience of being hounded by dodgy double glazing salesman practices means I will never engage with deVere España. And if they don't reply to my last email to cease and desist from pestering my office colleagues in Madrid and Barcelona I will be complaining to the regulator here in Spain. A most untrustworthy company just from its sales tactics.
