The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the UK financial regulator, has issued a warning about Capital Markets Banc, an online entity claiming to provide binary options and forex trading.
The website of the entity purports that the headquarters of Capital Markets Banc are in the United Kingdom. The firm has been operating in the country without the mandatory license by the regulator.
Information on the website shows that the companies behind the operation are Joshua Consulting LTD and Joshua Development Limited. A registration number with an address pointing to the island of Dominica is also listed.
