The Financial Services Board (FSB) warns the public against conducting financial services business with Instant Group SA. Instant Group SA is not an authorised Financial Services Provider and the public is warned to exercise caution when dealing with this entity.
It has been brought to the Registrar’s attention that Instant Group SA purports to have been issued with the FSP Number 41456. The said FSP Number was a reference number allocated to Tara-Jane Metzler trading as Metsure Financial Services when it applied for a licence to conduct business as a financial services provider.
The Registrar rejected Tara-Jane Metzler trading as Metsure Financial Services’ application to conduct business as a financial services provider. Instant Group SA is not authorised to use the FSP number 41456.
The FSB again reminds consumers who wish to conduct financial services with an institution or person to check beforehand with the FSB on either the toll free number (0800110 443) or on the website www.fsb.co.za as to whether or not such institution or person is authorised to render financial services.
