2018-04-20, Public warning by MAS Singapore against Amadicia LTD
Investor Alert List
Who may provide financial services in Singapore?
Persons providing financial services in Singapore are required to be licensed, exempt or otherwise regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to carry out activities regulated under the relevant laws administered by MAS.
The names of regulated persons in respect of the provision of financial services under the various Acts administered by MAS are listed on MAS' website in the Financial Institutions Directory.
Why should consumers not deal with unregulated persons?
Persons providing financial services in Singapore are required to be licensed, exempt or otherwise regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to carry out activities regulated under the relevant laws administered by MAS. The names of regulated persons in respect of the provision of financial services under the various Acts administered by MAS are listed on MAS' website in the Financial Institutions Directory.
Consumers seeking financial services are strongly encouraged to deal only with persons that are regulated by MAS. MAS' regulatory regime aims at safeguarding the interests of consumers by ensuring that only competent and professional persons may provide financial services. The laws administered by MAS also require disclosure of information on investment products being recommended to consumers. If a consumer chooses to deal with persons that are not regulated by MAS, he forgoes the protection afforded under laws administered by MAS, particularly if these persons are based overseas.
MoneySENSE has issued consumer alerts highlighting the common techniques used by persons that are not regulated by MAS to solicit business and the risks involved. These persons may target Singaporean consumers or overseas consumers by giving them the false impression that they are operating in Singapore. Some of these unregulated persons may sometimes use names similar to that of entities regulated by MAS. The alerts also inform consumers of the steps they can take to protect themselves.

The Investor Alert List
From time to time, MAS receives information on unregulated persons who have been mistaken as being licensed or authorised by MAS. Consumers should exercise care when dealing with these persons or with other persons acting on their behalf. Overseas consumers who receive solicitations by persons who claim to have an operation in Singapore should also exercise care and check if they are in fact dealing with persons who are regulated by MAS.
Below is a list of unregulated persons who, based on information received by MAS, may have been wrongly perceived as being licensed or authorised by MAS. The information published on the Investor Alert List is based on what was known to MAS at the time of publication. The list is not exhaustive and will be updated.
If you suspect that an unregulated person has committed an offence of a commercial or fraudulent nature, you may wish to refer your case to the Commercial Affairs Department.
