The website www.sogevis.com is abusively using the label “Plateforme de financement participatif régulée par les autorités françaises”(crowdfunding platform regulated by the French authorities). The use of this collective mark is reserved for legal entities meetingvarious regulatory requirements(1).
This platform does not have a legal status as a CIA or ISP authorizing it to offer investors in France subscriptions to financial securities.The AMF recommends that investors do not take up these solicitations and do not communicate them to third parties, in any formwhatsoever.Lastly, the AMF reminds investors and individuals responsible for marketing investment products to follow these safety guidelines beforemaking any investment:no advertising materials should make you overlook the fact that high returns always involve high risk;learn as much as you can about the company or intermediary trying to sell you a product (authorisation/certification, companyhistory, location of head offices, registration with ORIAS, etc.);only invest in a product you understand;ask yourself how, and by whom, the purchase price or selling price of the advertised product is set, and find out the precise termsand timeline for selling the product, especially in cases where the product invests in an asset class with low liquidity.
