The Northwest Territories Office of the Superintendent of Securities, an office of the GNWT Department of Justice, is alerting investors that LeadingPips is not registered to sell securities in the Northwest Territories. LeadingPips purports to be an online trading platform specializing in the trading of forex, binary options, crypto assets, and other financial instruments. LeadingPips is soliciting investments through its website: leadingpips.com. It claims to be based out of the Northwest Territories and to be licensed and regulated. However, LeadingPips is not registered to sell securities in the Northwest Territories and they do not appear to be registered anywhere else. They are also the subject of an Investor Alert issued by the Nova Scotia Securities Commission
The Department urges all residents to exercise extreme caution when dealing with firms that are not registered in the Northwest Territories. It is generally illegal to solicit investments in the Northwest Territories without being registered and complying with Northwest Territories securities laws. To see if a company or person is registered, you can check the Canadian Securities Administrators' National Registration Search.
The Office of the Superintendent of Securities is the office responsible for regulating the investment industry in the Northwest Territories.
