Abacus Financial Management - Warnung FCA UK - 2012-Feb-28



Financial Services Authority

ALERT

We (the Financial Services Authority ­ FSA) have published this statement today in order to warn investors against dealing with unauthorised firms.

This statement is to advise members of the public that an organisation identifying itself to UK individuals as:

Abacus Financial Management (Clone of FSA authorised firm)
www.abacusfinancialmgmt.com
Telephone: 0207 193 9451

is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) to carry on a regulated activity in the UK. Regulated activities include, amongst other things, advising on investments and dealing and arranging deals in investments ('investments' include stocks and shares). We believe that the organisation may be targeting UK customers.

The following FSA authorised firm has no association whatsoever with the organisation discussed above identifying itself as Abacus Financial
Management:
· Abacus Financial Management (FSA authorisation: 182922)
779 Harrow Road, Wembley, Middlesex, HA0 2LW
In addition, it has no association whatsoever with the following formerly FSA authorised firm:
· Abacus Financial Management (Previously FSA registered with No.
214504)
