Hi

I have been offered a job with devere and will to be starting in sept 1st which i was happy about untill coming accross some of these comments...

At first i was very aware of the guy taking my interview looked very young and did not really have much to say about the whole company its self but i went to 2 interviews and also took a test which seemed to be very professinal.

I am still not sure i have been offered the job and also been sent the manual which basically says i have to pay for my flights and rent cost for living so this does not seen professibal as most big companys would pay for me to go out there right??

can anyone give me info on this please as i dont want to be taken for a ride im 23 and just finished uni.

firstly I just want to thank everyone for posting on this site. I received an email today from a HR manager from Devere and did think it was too good to be true.

can I just re-iterate other posts;

IF IT SEEMS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT USUALLY IS!!! do your research and don't be a mug!

I have been offered work with Devere Group also, strongly suggest to anyone in the position not to go ahead. If something appears to good to be true it usually is! Don't take the risk..

Judging from your other PissedConsumer complaint about this company, you and the advisers are in Seoul.The company website for "Regency Asset Management Limited" says "Regency is a wholly independent company founded with the specific objective of providing specialist financial planning to the international investor, with particular emphasis on the expatriate community".

The website gives the company address as "Praha City Center, Klimentska 46, 110 02 Praha 1, Czech Republic". The website domain is registered at the same Prague address. "Praha City Center" has its own website and is a large building offering rented office space in Prague. Google "Czech company register", open the links and look for "Regency": there is no company registered in the Czech Republic called Regency Asset Management.

You can presumably contact the authorities in South Korea to find out if the company is properly registered in South Korea and complying with the rules laid down by the South Korean financial regulator.

Your adviser is mentioned in an interview with the other partner in this company on Korea Business Central "From British Embassy Trade Specialist to Financial Advisor to the International Community in Korea".A link to the company website with the Prague address is on that page.

@ Reply to Dan,

Yes, you are correct. There is no record of such a firm here in Prague. There is also no record of this firm on the Czech National Bank register which is the regulator.

It is therefore not authorised to give advice here, I cannot comment about other jurisdictions.

Buy list of emails in the net, there are reasonably cheap and may help you to reach an incredible number of people in one hit.

Dan: let me guess: GEnerali Vision is the plan you were signed up with?

Have you checked what the consumer protection/financial advice laws say about what information has to be disclosed at the place/country you were a resident when signing up? Some people got their money back by taking the hard way with both Generali Vision and the salesperson....

Beware of REGENCY Asset Management and Mark Howarth.Mark comes across as a friendly and experienced financial adviser , however in reality he completely lied to me.

I told him that I am on a 2 year contract and want to save some money before going back to the UK. He tied me in to a 25 year savings plan.

After trying to cancel many months later when I found out I simply lost everything !Beware...

I am a working for a real asset management company.Some of my colleagues worked at Devere that changed their name from Britex due to fraudulent activities.

They are big time rip off merchants ripping off clients and their own employees.

They pay the worst commissions in the business and apart from the directors everyone hates them.If you are interested in the industry and want to work in a solid honest company feel free to email me cburrows@vn-am.com I can point you in the right direction
