The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) says a company calling itself Batama Investments Ltd., an independent alternative asset management company, is regulated by the AMF, which is not true. 

The Batama website also points to a named Ombudsman of the AMF for those who have any complaints, but the AMF says it has never employed anyone by that name. 

The AMF said it is taking the necessary steps to set the record straight.
