Bunch of scammers

Simply put. They ARE profiting from the referrals from the broker. Avatrade has one of the highest referral bonuses out there (not to mention that tons of customers have problems withdrawing their money from this dodgy platform). I cant post the link, but you can google avatrade refer a friend bonus.

I have traded for close to 5 years and am well aware of what they are doing.


Ive been down for their interview, and everything about the place is a scam.

1) They have a 3 room tiny office, with one computer screen and nothing else. Not a single trader in sight, one computer screen an pretty much nothing else except laptops

2) They insist on you signing up for a live account with $500 with 100 minimum trades in a period of 3 months, which makes no sense whatsoever as firstly that comes up to more than 1 trade per day (markets arent open on the weekends), and they are trading off a 1 hour chart. which shows they know almost nothing about day trading where you would be making 1-3 trades per day but definitely not off a naked 1 hour price chart. Secondly, their risk to reward aims are terrible, with a 1.5x risk to reward target, and they insist you must hit 100 trades. If they were really a legitimate company, 1) why the need for minimum of $500? you could easily test the same concept with $100 or less and 2) if you could achieve the returns they are asking for - 20% in 3 months, why the need for the 100 trades? 3) why the need to use avatrade? based off reviews avatrade is one of the most scammy and ineffective brokers. why not use a reputable platform like oanda or the hundreds of other recognized brokers.

basically, they have some sort of referral system in which they earn bonuses from avatrade with a minimum $500, 100 trades within 3 months. they have no intention to hire anyone and are simply wasting your time and money. Simply google to see how many people work at the company on linkedin or glassdoor, the answer is zero (except for the shady scammer founder). FYI, they used to be called ANZ financials pte ltd before they changed their name probably after getting exposed.

Its not that easy to get a job in asset management. In UK tens and thousands of students pay top dollar to go to expensive target schools just to have a chance to work in the city.

If there are jobs in asset management that sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Feedbacks

Hi jkjk9212,

Thank you for your feedback


1) Currently our office space is about 500 sq feet and can accommodate around 15 people and we have a team of only 10 people now. As the company grow, we may shift to a bigger office

2) We have a 3 stage selection process. Written test, demo trading and live trading test. We will only select 20% of the people who we interviewed to take part in the live trading test and we will conduct training to help them pass the test and they will get to keep 100% of the profits

3) Avatrade is a regulated broker by the Central bank of ireland and it has insurance protection against insolvency risk through the Irelandís Investor Compensation Company (ICCL) and its spread is fairly competitive to other brokers 0.9 pips euro/usd. Oanda 1.1 pips which means you pay more. Kindly refer to the links below

registers.centralbank.ie/FirmSearchResultsPage.aspx?searchEntity=Institution&searchType=Name&searchText=avatrade&registers=All&firmType=All[/url]

investopedia.com/avatrade-review-4587886

investorcompensation.ie/participant/participant-firms.203.html?p=1&st=avatrade&su=&f=&sbe=&stype=


4) We do not allow our traders to put their linkedin profile as we do not want people to contact them privately for investments and we hold our funds with MAS regulated brokers and banks

Hope that clarifies.
