Red Flag
The information provided here primarily serves to raise awareness, but ultimately also that a certain amount of healthy foresight is recommended in order to protect yourself from unforeseen surprises. With the overviews developed by DDH, we offer you sufficient possibilities to choose your future financial service provider with a clear conscience and based on sound information.

The 'Red Flag' overview is dedicated to companies that have failed to comply with the requirements of the supervisory authorities in their operational business. If these are not petty offences, but problems of a systemic nature, they can result in fines and sanctions. Normally, financial services providers avoid getting into situations where regulators feel compelled to impose sanctions.The list may include companies that have come under increased criticism from the community or have been brought to our attention via whistleblowing. Also listed are cases of identity theft, where well-known names are appropriated and fake identities are used to mislead inexperienced users.

Red Flag Monitor
The information presented here is non-judgmental and should not be interpreted as a pre-judgement. Companies that want to improve their processes should feel motivated to quickly and specifically remedy the findings of the supervisory authorities and furthermore ensure that incidents do not occur again. A penalty should be the last resort and urgently lead to the necessary improvements. If this does not happen, alarm bells should ring.

If the reasons for a red flag listing no longer apply, this will be taken into account accordingly. Please feel free to contact us directly should you feel that a listing in this area would no longer be necessary.
