According to the BCSC website, the regulator has become aware that the firm “may be operating in or from BC.” The BCSC is an independent provincial government agency responsible for regulating the market in British Columbia.
Redwood Options is not authorised or licensed to trade in, advise on, or exchange financial products in this region of Canada.
The regulator urges BC residents to exercise caution when dealing with the firm, and recommends that customers only deal with firms that are regulated.
