Aros Securities (Clone of previously FSA EEA Authorised firm) - Waarschuwing FCA UK - 2012-Aug-28


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 citizens as:

Aros Securities (Clone of previously FSA EEA Authorised firm) Address:
Kaivokatu 8
Finland 00101
Tel: +35 893 158 1939

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.

This entity is using the details of a previously FSA EEA Authorised firm. The following
firm has no association whatsoever with the organisation described above that is identifying itself as Aros Securities:

§ Aros Securities OY
FSA Firm Registration Number: 212756 Status: No longer authorised
Aros Securities OY is no longer incorporated, and therefore ceased to exist, in Finland

What does this mean for you?
If you are an investor, you should be aware that the Financial Ombudsman Service and the
Financial Services Compensation Scheme are not available if you deal with an unauthorised
company or individual.
How can you check whether a firm is authorised?
