Before investing money:
- do your own research on different investors first
- contact the investment firms using the contact details on their official New Zealand-based website, not through emails, links, or phone numbers found online or sent to you directly
- make sure the investment firm is licenced by the Financial Markets Authority (FMA)
- check the FMA warnings and alerts page to make sure the firm isn’t listed as a suspected scammer.
