Hola mis amigos!
Have you ever had one of those days when you just want something to be simple and clear? When it rains and all you want to do is just look at the bright, blue sky? When all the paths you've chosen proved to be difficult and all you wanted was a shortcut?
Well, amigos, it's been one of these days and it doesn't seem to end. Luckily, AlbionUnion did nothing to complicate my day even further. Just quite the opposite: perusing their website turned out to be one of the shortcuts I anticipated.
Let's start with the basics: according to the information found on the bottom of the website, AlbionUnion is "Operated by SWISSAL LTD. Company no.: #08312005". Just a quick investigation should tell you that this private limited company does indeed exist outside the Internet and was registered in London, UK (Enterprise House, 21 Buckle Street) on the 29th of November 2012. When you look at the part where they talk about themselves (and I don't mean the introductory video, we'll get to that soon enough), you'll read that "AlbionUnion was founded in 2012 by a group of skilled analysts and experienced traders to create a secure and highly profitable investment opportunities. [...] In 2013, AlbionUnion started submission secure investment opportunities to internet users worldwide". Yes, I know, rather disappointing.
Given that the page itself is so straightforward and easy to navigate, one would expect more than the same "skilled","experienced" and "highly profitable" cliches. If you hoped that the welcome video would tell you more about AlbionUnion, you may be dissatisfied: it's a nice enough video, sure, but all you get is the "competent team, skilled experts, professional analysts, customer support 24/7, worldwide satisfied customers", slogans that you're used to getting.
Going back to the Need To Know pieces of information: AlbionUnion's domain was registered on April 11, 2013 and doesn't expire for another ten years. Just recently, the website has been secured with RapidSSL and the certificate will be valid for fours more years. As you may have noticed, AlbionUnion seems to be all about the long term commitment. Are their plans following the same rule of thumb?
AU offers seven investment plans to choose from:
Start, Advance, Expert, Professional, Deluxe, Premium and V.I.P,
and they last from 40 to 120 days, so you might say that long term thing applies here as well. Investing with AlbionUnion starts at $50 and, according to the Get Started section (which also serves as the FAQ section), has no limits ("The minimum investment amount is only $50 for e-currencies and the maximum amount of investment is not limited"), although the most expensive plan, V.I.P., goes as high as $100,000. The daily profits range from 0.6% (Start), through 1% (Expert) or 1.8% (Deluxe) to 2.2% daily (V.I.P.). According to the Get Started section, "The first profit will be added to your account balance within the following 24 hours after you've invested" and you can withdraw as little as $5.
The principal can be withdrawn as well, but if you do it before your plan ends, you will pay a 40% fee then. Transactions are handled manually, so they may take up to 48 hours, and to transfer or deposit money you can use C-Gold, Perfect Money, EgoPay, SolidTrustPay, QIWI or bank wires.
Naturally, what you have to do first is register your own AlbionUnion account, which shouldn't take you more than a couple of seconds. The only hiccup may be that AU requires your full name which, I know, some of you find disconcerting. However, if you have any questions regarding this process you may take advantage of one of AlbionUnion's strengths: the support system which consists of a phone line (+44 20 704 82 097), fax (+44 20 704 82 097), contact form and a "leave a message" pop up that can be found in the right bottom section of the website.
AlbionUnion's motto, "the place for your profit", works also when you're solely interested in referring other people to use their services: AU pays 5% for your referrals. Also, to show that AU is "the place" to be, the administrator was as kind as to give us access to his Forex trade account on apriori-fx.com. Thanks to this we could really acknowledge AlbionUnion's excellent results – they are definitely good players and they seem to almost always win:
Still, what should be noted, is that their broker cannot be found anywhere else, not even on the renowned www.forexpeacearmy.com, which makes it harder to assess the credibility of the source. Not to mention the fact that the broker's own website leaves a lot to be desired, amigos. On the other hand, since AlbionUnion obviously tries to make our lives easier not harder, we're still hoping that the program's administration will simply share a more credible AU's trading history in a more reliable manner so that potential and existing users will say what I said today: thanks for making my work more pleasurable, guys! And I wish the very same thing to you, mis amigos.
