Achievement Trust Prosperity they spout, sometimes..depends on what other ideas they can come up with for their acronym ATP.
These companies morphed out of Winchester Securities and Global Income Solutions. After Winchester Securities folded, they became Global Income Solutions. Then they seem to have been bent on persuing this theme of ATP .
All the websites were virtually identical ( only theatp.com.au is up now) . They even had the same testimonials with the names of the company changed. They were selling trading packages in Forex, Gold and Oil, with hefty licence fees charged to get started. From reports on various forums it sounds like they didn’t perform too well. They had common Directors and shareholders, were Authorised Representatives for the same companies for their Australian Financial Services Licences, and not to forget, had offices on the same floor of the same building. (also where TradingIT are as well. And read ditto for their Directors and AFSL licencees).
So, if their strategies were so good, what happened? They seem to all have moved on to the next morph. I wonder what happened to their clients that paid all that money for the services. This is one of the main things to be wary of with these companies that freshly set-up all the time: where will you be if they decide to close up, again?
