The Advanced Markets Group is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, we are committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as “personal data”, « personally identifiable information » or « PII »).

Generally, our intent is to collect only the personal information that is provided voluntarily when you visit any one of the Advanced Markets Group’s websites (regardless of where you visit it from) or provide it in the course of our client onboarding processes so that we can offer information and/or our services to those individuals or offer information about employment opportunities. Please review this privacy statement (« Privacy Statement ») to learn more about how we collect, use, and share and protect the personal information that we have obtained as well as your privacy rights and how the law protects you. This Privacy Statement is also designed to reflect the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

Our offices include jurisdictions outside the European Union which have not been deemed adequate for European Union Data Protection purposes (namely the Cayman Islands and Bermuda).
