Devere Group in Somers, New York - Call at current work - very unprofessional and advice pathetic and wrong
I received a call today at my current work as they had my details from Linked-In, very unprofessional to start with. I called back as I didn't know what the call was about and was given a lot of fluff and rubbish. When i probed more the person on the phone didn't know and passed me onto a 'professional advisor' - he had no idea and was providing incorrect advice on tax, investments and the economy as a whole. I am glad I am not a customer of yours and would be very concerned about anything I had invested with you if I was.
Devere Group in Alicante, Valencia - DEVERE SPAIN SCAM! You lost my life savings and paid yourselves 15%!!!
I am disgusted to have recently learnt that the devere spain financial advisor who told me to close down my uk investments, which had performed well for over 10 years, and invest my money into UAM Strategic Growth fund earned 7.5% of my life savings before his terrible advice ruined my life!!!! And even worst, my new financial advisor told me he only gets 50% of what devere actually made out of me! So not only does your crooked CEO own the fund, but your advisors are being paid through the roof to sell it?! I was assured you were independent and i was being sold that fund because it was the best available. It seems a bit of a coincidence that the best fund available for me in the world is also owned by devere!!! I tried to sell my investment for nearly 4 months before I was finally told the fund was suspended and i have seen less than 20% of my money returned in several years since. Surprise surprise, the crook who sold it to me, despite still working for devere in spain, is no longer my advisor so wont even answer the phone to me. Thanks for ruining my life devere spain.
Devere Group - LIES LIES LIES - LESS THAN 3% OF YOUR ADVISORS ARE QUALIFIED!
Why do you repeatedly lie on this website, which you recently bought, so you could delete over 500 negative reviews about your company? You have claimed on numerous posts here that 'all of our advisors are qualified'. This is an absolute lie and you know it. I have checked over 200 of your advisors via linkedin over the last week and of that 200 only 5 were registered as qualified on the CISI or CII register. Most of their CVs showed their last job was used car salesman, retail, estate agent; almost none from finance. So how can you justify your lies? You risk people's life savings so you and your salesman - you're not a financial advisory, you sell insurance - can make 12-15% commission off everything you recommend. Shameful.
Devere Group in Gilbert, Arizona - Never followed through...
I received an unsolicited approach some time ago (early 2015) by a DeVere adviser who offered to help us transfer retirement investments from the United Kingdom to the United States. We filled in paperwork, divulged a fair amount of personal information, and provided Letters of Authority, so that DeVeres could obtain confidential financial information regarding our UK affairs. Apart from a brief follow up conversation, I have not received any meaningful information, nor has DeVeres ever followed through. I am speculating, but I guess the amount of money involved was not large enough to entice them to actually do the job they promised to do.
A word to those looking for information on scams & unethical dealings by DeVere. They engage in careful content management and 'flood' sites like these with their responses which then rank first....knowing that people are lazy researchers. Google's own research shows 53% of people do not look beyond the first two responses and 89% do not look past page one. They are 'managing' (read: manipulating) this site to bury their sins. This company is the worst of the worst- incapable of change as the corporate culture is rotten top down to bottom. They do employ naïve & desperate sales people who may appear plausible. Caute!
Devere Group in Madrid, Madrid - De Vere Group are telephone spammers - slam the phone back down
De Vere are a total pain that follow you wherever you go. They call your work switchboard, give their name but never their company, get put through to you, start off all friendly - but the only thing want is your money, with a high pressure sales technique to get it. They are *** artists after your money. Who suddenly and unwillingly has 15 minutes to discuss their personal financial affairs in the middle of a working day in their open plan office? Avoid at all costs.
Devere Group - I won't deal with them again.
I'm frankly surprised that deVere invites comments about their service but then the law of averages suggests they'll have at least some happy customers, it's just that I'm not one of them. What follows is based on my on experience of deVere after having dealt with them over some time. It is a series of personal opinions based on actual contact with various parts of the deVere organisation. All statements and opinions are supported by documentary evidence a and recorded phone calls - a caution stemming from having dealt with them for some time. But your mileage might vary. I initially dealt with someone called Alex in Bangkok (my home at that time). I found Alex's attitude to be arrogant, unhelpful beyond wanting to sell me something, and uncaring of customer needs right from my second contact with him. I should have seen the writing on the wall at that time, but I figured I would give him some time, that he was probably a professional. However I found that this seems to permeate all levels of their regional operation - from the girl who answers the phone in Bangkok right up to their regional management office. I found all interactions with deVere to be thoroughly unsatisfactory. frustrating and unacceptable, though unfortunately, this was after after I had already invested 100,000UKP with them. Perhaps they no longer regarded me as a source of enrichment. Looking back, my due diligence should have been better. Their European management has a uniform approach to customer service; they don't bother to respond, Not to phone calls - any phone calls, not to to emails - any emails. At any management level, from Nigel Green (CEO) down. I suggest this is because they are reluctant to respond to any customer service issues that might cause them to question their own self-image, though I did get one call from a deVere lawyer on one occasion. Normally I would not speak to lawyers directly nor did I ask to that time. Instead of addressing the actual issues I was raising, he tried to intimidate me whilst otherwise acting much as one would expect from an American lawyer working for a financial services company. Arrogance, a disinterest in customer complaints and a lack of concern for their customer's money now appear to me to be a part of their corporate culture - certainly it seems to be a defining characteristic of their operation. My investment of 100,000UKP is, after some time in deVere custody, now worth about 35% of that - not impressive but nobody at deVere seems much bothered about it. perhaps because it is not an isolated case? Though I understand they've done quite well from commissions from the various funds they recommended I buy. I cannot say if the deVere behaviour has been any more or less honest or dishonest than what we ought to expect from financial services companies, simply from reading the newspapers, but their recommendations for investment decisions appear to have been more orientated towards large commissions than investment performance. Perhaps I just expected too much and acted too late. The end result is that I will never deal with deVere again. Not ever. Nor will any of my family, nor, if I can influence them, will any of my friends or acquaintances. I lost what to me was a lot of money dealing with them, you don't need to. Now I expect I may very well get more threats of legal action from them. Easier than learning how to deliver honest customer service I suppose. In my experience, you can't expect a dog to learn how to be a cat; once born and trained, it will probably continue to behave like a dog throughout its life. Give them a very wide berth would be my advice.
Devere Group in Frankfurt, Hesse - Scam company, stay far from them!
They disappeared with more than 10k euros invested in last years and now it's not possible to have them back and they refuse to answer emails and calls. Don't trust them, in particular deVere Germany and one of their consultant called Mark Gibson and the administrative part. It's a total scam, stay far from them as much as possible if you don't want to lose all your money, if someone wants to invest with Generali, then can do it by him/her self and bypass this bunch of thieves.
Devere Group - Generali Vision Plan Review from Dubai, Dubai
The Generali Vision plan . I signed up for 10 years and on year 6 I moved home to the UK and suddenly found out that I couldn't stop . Then I found out I could get my money out penelty free at least but they still hold onto my first 10 months until the end of the 10 years !! The plan had performed well up until I stopped payment but I think people need to be made aware of the pitfalls . This is what happens when you sit down with a Devere *** . What's worse my friend went to another Advisor and was told all this before she signed up and took a 5 year plan which would have suited me perfect .
