deVere (via Nigel Green, the CEO, Steven Luckett, the global recruitment director and others) are professional scam artists specializing in ripping British expats off as well as draining their own financial consultants out of money and sexually abusing their female professionals.
Currently they are feverishly recruiting young professionals in Spain, Portugal, Ireland and other western European countries where as a result of the financial crisis many have lost their jobs, but still have some savings left in order pay these criminals tribute for being f****d over.
A year ago my friend was cheated out of $ 20 000 after being promised riches (no less than GBP 120 000 a year!!) and a splendid career. During a week-long deVere financial consultants' training course in Malta at the end of which (according to the excited cries of Steven Luckett, hopping around madly with patched up trousers at deVere presentation) participants had to stand an official independent financial adviser exam, she was approached by one of deVere representatives with an open offer to 'treat his male parts', in exchange for them 'making sure she got promoted'. As she refused, the representative suggested later on on the course that she 'lacked necessary sales skills' so to fail her deliberately and get rid of a living stain on his reputation.
As it turned out, she would have been luckier to have failed the course than having been selected for the position of a financial consultant.
Still not convinced? Read on.
DeVere consultants do NOT get 120 000 a year and they do NOT get a professional IFA qualification. This is just a bait for the gullible who believe Steven Luckett, Nigel Green & Co. are telling the truth just because they cannot IMAGINE being fooled by a company with a beautiful website and (seemingly) a lot of connections, in the most outrageous way.
After having passed the 'course', she had to spend another three weeks in Malta at her own cost, because Steven Luckett's announcement that 'deVere will arrange you everything, including visas and employment permits!' turned out to be an outward scam. After finally getting the visa on her own and moving to the destination country, she also discovered that she had to 'contribute' towards their office, heating, coffee, rubbish, toilet paper etc. costs. There were no computers at the office as they could not afford to pay for the Internet!!!
Furthermore, please note: 'contribute' as it is understood in deVere, means to pay your share off completely or not get any commission. Phone bills she had to cover on her own - quite a feat if cold-calling and trying to attract angry for being pestered people takes you 95% of your working time, as it 'is not up to the company to give you leads' (what did we train you for?!).
After having lived for 3 MONTHS on her own and her parents' money, it finally dawned to her that the well-deserved commission was due to her at this rate no sooner than by 2050.
She quit the company and is a living proof that a loss of $20 000 and a sore *ss is all you can get from these beggared scammers, sexual predators who have apparently come from a slum.
Be on your guard.

I hear that they are particularly active in Ireland - via their recruiter Paul Kingston (if I remember the name right). Do Not even speak to him!!!
I have read many complaints on various sites about him, f...ing people over. E.g., lying about financial consultants' duties and lying about the training course arrangements supposedly made by deVere, until people actually go to Malta and find out that they have nowhere to stay and nothing to eat.

Toby Williams of devere Bangkok has given me the run around for 2 years. I originally signed a 25 year Generali retirement policy with him after he did the hard sell on me.. He did say we would have meetings every quarter, this failed to happen;. My investments have gone down, he is too busy trying to earn more commissions with new clients?.

I feel absolutely cheated, violated by his lies about how good the service would be.. There hasn't been any just excuses?. I've since found out he was selling houses in UK, has no prior financial services knowledge and lies about his past qualifications'. This seems to be a common thread with devere staff, lies, cheating, being conservative with the truth.
I've since found out that 70% of the staff in that Bangkok office don't even have proper work permits, they work illegally like many other Devere offices. When will the authorities crack down on these parasites that cause so much misery?

my friend got date raped at work reported it to the police etc - police told her to check her finances as sometimes attackers ask for finance details - her parents live in spain - she thinks they asked for her parents details when drugged and passed them onto this company. Devere started harrasing her parents out of the blue and they had loads of info on them. SCARY STUFF

After I got scammed I was literally suicidal as I had invested my life's savings. Luckily for me I got referred to an EC council certified hacker, he was able to recover 90% of my stolen funds thanks to his skill set. If you'd like to reach out to him then feel free to contact him via email on Jack_forest@programmer.net

i was able to recover about 87% of the money i had originally lost to hedge stone binary option group. it was crazy for me, i will not deny. i starting trading binary options with hedge stone in January 2016, i was even able to withdraw. it was amazing. i told a lot of people about ti cause i was profiting and figured it would be nice if my friends were in on it too so we could ball together. as at the time i started telling folks about hedge stone, i had already invested 7500GPB and had a profit of over 20k. it was impressive. people wanted to catch up so they put in significant amounts at the beginning. little did we know that things were about to change . since October last year, i couldn't login my account not to talk of withdraw. i didn't want any negative vibe so i did not think otherwise, till much later when i realized they changed a lot of their information including their bank account . this was when I contacted bloodlust_omega@null.net he was the person who helped me to recover the money I had foolishly lost.I am thankful for people like this who will still come through for you in due time, if you have invested wrongly in a binary broker or you just realized the broker is playing dirty, contact bloodlust_omega@null.net, he will execute the task for you in anonymity and you can also trust him to see the job through
