The AMF reminds that the marketing, distribution and sale, in France or from France, of binary options to retail investors are prohibited.
Since January 1, 2020, the AMF has added 70 websites to its list of unauthorized entities proposing atypical investments. Over the year 2019 as a whole, 112 names were added.
These websites may change very quickly and these lists presented in alphabetic or thematic order are not intended to be exhaustive.
Any offer to invest in miscellaneous assets must be registered with the AMF to be marketed. The white list of offers recorded in miscellaneous assets is available on the AMF website.
