Italy’s financial markets and services provider regulator CONSOB has updated its warning list with the brokers who are not licensed to operate in Italy. RoyalFunds and LV Grow Markets happened to get into the list. These firms have been offering investment services and activities to the Italian public without being authorized in the country.

Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (CONSOB; Italian Companies and Exchange Commission) is the Italian governmental authority responsible for regulating the Italian securities market. The regulator is also responsible for the Italian stock exchange, the Borsa Italiana.
