Shareholders should be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports on the Company.
Many companies have become aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters which imply a connection to the company.
These are typically from overseas based ‘brokers’ who target UK shareholders offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments. These operations are often referred to as 'boiler rooms'.
The brokers can be very persistent and extremely persuasive and a 2006 survey by the Financial Services Authority - now known as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) - reported that the average amount lost by investors is around £20,000. It is not just the novice investor that has been duped in this way; many of the victims had been successfully investing for several years.
Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports on the Company.
If you receive any unsolicited investment advice:
If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you would not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
Ferguson plc endorses the Shareview share dealing facility, a service offered by our registrars, Equiniti.
