The real Managing Director for BRITEX INTERNATIONAL IS A PERSON CALLED Nigel Green. Colin Barr is simply a legally qualified person brought in to keep the directors safe from all the repercussions which could afflict the directorial management of a company which has been acting in the way Britex and its "off-shoot "Devere& Partners have been operating.

Britex is now apparently bankrupt.Their consultants who were working in singapore were arrested for working illegally without work permits or visas.Those consultants are now in Hong Kong and have not even been paid for any business they submitted from Singapore,Malaysia,Jakarta or Dubai.

IT SEEMS THAT BRITEX IS NOW TRYING TO ESTABLISH ITSELF UNDER THE NAME DEVERE AND PARTNERS...Devere and partners was originally to be the britex operation in Hong Kong with around 20 consultants making cold calls >>>[ILLEGAL IN HK] to people at their places of work promoting the Imperial Consolidated fund amongst other products from a small office in central Hong Kong.

Many of the consultants were never paid any commissions as their services were dispensed with prior to the commissions they earned being paid.

The company has been operating in Hong Kong since june 2001 but none of the foreign consultants have working visas or Hk id's.There are no local chinese staff apart from perhaps a new secretary now.

The company was initially called Devere & Partners so as not to be associated with Britex which already had a bad reputation in Hong Kong.

The titanium fund is categorised as an "Expert Fund" i.e should only be sold to expert investors, under the Securities (Collective Investment Schemes and Closed-End Funds) Regulations 2008.

Shareholders in the Fund are not protected by any statutory compensation arrangements in the event of the Fund's failure.

Sounds like another brilliant fund from devere.....

You missed out the bit that Britex changed its name to devere and partners because it was heavily flogging the Imperial Consolidated fund which went under losing clients millions!It was investigated by the Serious fraud office in the UK at the time back in 2002.

Now Nigel Green is selling his own funds again like Valais and united to clients.Watch this space....

missing facts:

bear in mind that they have launched a new product called the Titanium Private Equity Fund. No records, no fund codes and yet they show past history on the fact sheets. UAM is suspended and no one knows why...

Also the www is virtually the same and UAM....

I had a brush with one of Wealth Managers from Devere and partners who claimed to have gotten my contacts in one of the networking events.

When I decided not to invest in one of the retirement savings funds he proposed, the dude accused me why I took the meeting with him in the first place ! As if I was obliged to buy their sucky products if I met them !

Guys, stay away from them. Put your money elsewhere.
