Dear Clients and Dear Partners,
The phenomenon of impersonation of professionals in the financial sector is on the rise, so AEW UK Investment Management LLP (“AEW UK”) invites all its partners to be extra vigilant with fraudulent solicitations by relaying the message below:
AEW UK, a UK asset management company and an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, draws the public’s attention to the impersonation of its identity and the identity of some of its staff members, including by the use of e-mail addresses not ending with eu.aew.com
This fraudulent behaviour seems so far to focus on proposed investment opportunities by AEW UK, and potentially on other products within the AEW Group. These fraudulent contracts have no legal value and do not bind AEW UK or lead to its liability.
AEW UK does not offer investments (in term deposit account or any other financial investment) to customers via e-mail, social networks, electronic trading platforms or by telephone. In addition, AEW UK does not offer investments to retail customers or private individuals.
If you have been solicited, please:
(i) do not respond to such solicitations or make any payment in connection therewith and
(ii) contact AEW UK‘s Compliance Department immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
AEW UK urges its customers, prospects and any other persons to be extremely vigilant and not to respond to any investment solicitations made via e-mail, phone calls or social networks/instant messaging.
Furthermore, the FCA recommends that solicitations from persons who are not clearly identified should not be followed up without first carrying out careful checks to ensure their identity:
The rules of vigilance to keep in mind before any investment are as following:
