We have become aware that members of the public may be the victims of an internet and email scam involving criminals purporting to be employees of Natixis or Natixis Investment Managers UK. It appears that this may have resulted in some members of the public losing money.

Natixis Investment Managers takes these matters very seriously and we have already taken appropriate steps to have an unlawful and non-genuine website domain closed down.

In circumstances such as these and whenever you are approached by an unknown firm/individual purporting to represent an investment firm, it is strongly advised that the identity of any firm that you are dealing with is verified by calling the firm on the firm’s switchboard number given on the UK FCA Register - register.fca.org.uk. or equivalent in other countries. If there are no contact details on the Register or they are out of date, the FCA Consumer Helpline should be contacted from a UK phone on 0800 111 6768.

There is also a warning list/scam checker on the UK FCA website with follow through questions to determine if an investment opportunity is legitimate and to avoid scams.
