BaFin hereby announces that it has not granted Adler Group B.V. authorisation to conduct banking business or provide financial services under section 32 of the KWG. The company allegedly operates branches in Kerkrade and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Miami, USA, London, United Kingdom, and Berlin, Germany. The company is not subject to supervision by BaFin.
The German-language website “adler-group.nl” features an image of an eagle, which symbolises the German state, together with a circle of gold stars as a symbol for the EU; this gives the impression that the company has been authorised by financial supervisors in the Federal Republic of Germany and in the European Union.
However, this is not the case.
In accordance with section 4 (4) of the Act Establishing the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanzdienstleistungsaufsichtsgesetz – FinDAG), BaFin performs its functions and exercises its powers exclusively in the public interest. We have a statutory duty of confidentiality and are therefore unable to provide third parties with information on the current status or results of administrative proceedings.
However, we would appreciate your assistance: should you have any information regarding the providers mentioned above , e.g. contract templates, e-mail addresses, telephone or fax numbers of the respective contact persons, account details, etc., please do not hesitate to get in touch with our contact point for whistleblowers.
