The regulator of Luxembourg’s financial markets, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), has warned that a firm claiming to be authorized under the name Ebel & Partner is in fact not licensed to carry out business from within its jurisdiction.
According to the public advisory dated January 23, 2017, the CSSF warns the public of the activities of an entity named Ebel & Partner Luxembourg S.A., which operates under the website www.ebelundpartners.com and claims to be supervised by the CSSF in Luxembourg.

The announcement also reveals that the aforementioned entity has published false data about its alleged headquarters at the 26-28, rue Edward Steichen, L-2540 Luxembourg.
The CSSF stated to the public that Ebel & Partnerhas not been granted the required authorization to offer banking and financial services in or from Luxembourg and is therefore not supervised by the CSSF.
This is not the first time that the CSSF has encountered websites falsely claiming to have something to do with Luxembourg. Luxembourg’s authorities pride themselves on the status of the country as a banking safe haven, and any company which declares itself as being registered or licensed by the CSSF is sure to be on the radar very quickly.
