ESMA warns investors the risks of investing in complex products
The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) would like to draw the attention of the
investing public to the investor warning of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA1)
regarding the risks of investing in complex products.
ESMA is concerned that during the current period of low investment returns, investment firms have
responded to the search for higher returns by offering complex investment products causing
inexperienced retail investors across the EU being tempted to invest in complex financial products,
which they may not fully understand and which can end up costing them money they cannot afford
According to the warning, “complex products are often aggressively marketed.
