Austen Morris Associates - Warning for FRAUD – For your own sake do not make any investments true this company!

Issue not resolved

My wife and me where *** enough some years ago to trust this company with an investment. Our total investment ended up to around 30.000 euros and today the total value has decreased with more than -70%. They have simply done nothing to improve this or given any useful advices at all even though the markets recent years have gone up.

We regret today very much not saving our money in a normal bank account!

Ok we admit it was stupide of us and we cannot do more now than give our warning to others. Our advice seen in the back marrow is, if approached by someone from this company just simply hang up or if you are on the way to sign an investment plan re think and PULL OUT other vice you risk to be ripped off.

Yes they look professional on their website but believe us their service is terrible and their advices are worth nothing.

One thing we have been wondering about is how a bank like Generali want to be branded with a company like Austen Morris whom is actually just are dealing with fraud.

Our summary,

The WMS service is useless.

Take care and do not invest because this is a company is experts on making nothing with your money just collecting their fee.

The valuation system provides little if any useful information.

They do not seems to have license to sell insurance in China.

Do not trust the information on their website anyone could easily build a site looking professional and they have but it is just a façade for a company trying to rip off people.

Again, beware before investing your money!

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders is scheduled to release on March 1st.
Buffett once again has the ability to release his letter on a Saturday, which is his preferred release date.
Warren Buffett’s letter to shareholders is one of the best read and most highly quoted business documents. Buffett displays great skill in explaining difficult subjects, and he does so with a sense of humor. He is the chairman and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway, so he even addresses topics other than the financial results of the company.
Investors are always looking for clues into the thinking process of what he will potentially by next, plus they like to know who is going to lead the Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway once the 83-year-old Buffett finally retires.
Buffett’s shareholder letter will accompany the Berkshire Hathaway annual report as it always does.

Warren Buffett didn't become one of the greatest investors of our generation by investing in gold. In fact, he pretty much hates the shiny metal. Just take a look at part of a speech Buffett gave at Harvard in 1998 when he said of gold:
"(It) gets dug out of the ground in Africa or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head."
Buffett just doesn't get what all the fuss is about when it comes to gold. The way he sees it, the value of gold is nothing more than our stubborn willingness to protect its value.
However, that's not the worst part of gold in Buffett's view. His biggest issue is the fact that gold is just so worthless. Not in the value someone is willing to pay for an ounce of it, but in its ability to create wealth. In Buffett's opinion, gold is lazy and has no place in an investor's portfolio.
Lazy, good-for-nothing ...
Buffett hammered on gold in his 2011 shareholder letter calling it an "unproductive asset." He said that assets like gold "will never produce anything, but are purchased in the buyer's hope that someone else will pay more for them in the future." He went on to say that the owners of assets like gold "are not inspired by what the asset itself can produce -- it will remain lifeless forever -- but by the belief that others will desire it even more avidly in the future." The problem with gold is that
