Anyone done business with Sterling Dunbar investments/Financial advisors?

 

They have an office in Maha Sarakham and apparently have clients all over Thailand.

 

Not yet read the blurb their advisor has sent me on Jupiter European Fund, Aria Real Asset Income Fund, Rudolf Wolff Global Income Fund and a brochure with 7500 investments to choose from.

 

Anyone invested in the above mentioned funds ? Any comments appreciated, good or bad for a novice.

Be very carefull before entering into an agreement with these sort of people.

Make sure you know exactly how much you will pay them,how,and for what services.

Investments don`t have to be complicated,many people choose to make their own decisions on where to invest.

Check if they are licensed in Thailand as required by law (both the firm, and the individual adviser).  If not, ask them why aren't they?  If they are a fly by night operation, you have no protection if they pull an LMIM on you.

No  need to run any checks , just look at the name, Sterling Dunbar!  the name screams we are  a bucket shop. These kind of operations will often try to use a name that sounds up-market (think deVere) or has elements of a name from a respected, solid, financial brand, Dunbar, anyone remember Allied Dunbar? Nothing to do with this lot i am sure! And they add in Sterling because of its association with strength and wealth , i guess. 

Barge Pole Job.   

Reminds me of "Barclay Spencer" of days gone by

Did they cold call you? If so, that's a red flag right away.

No, I replied to an ad somewhere recently.

Almost all crooks/dodgy.

Keep your investment advisers in your home country where they are registered and overseen.

Anyone working in Thailand needs to be registered with the Thai SEC, foreigners can't register.

Agree with the first line! not so sure about "foreigners can't register" MBMG state they are registered with the SEC?

And did they advertise their 'number' with the statement, so you could check?
