Scams and fraud

Please be aware that during this time of the coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak and end of UK tax year, there is a heightened risk of fraud by unscrupulous individuals seeking to take advantage of the present situation. Accordingly, you should use caution in responding to unsolicited investment proposals or requests for your personal information.

In particular, we are aware of specific instances of unauthorised use of our name by individuals purporting to represent Schroder Unit Trust Ltd and offering investment products that are not genuine, including but not necessarily limited to the ‘Schroders Fixed Rate UK Absolute Return Bond’. These are not genuine Schroders funds products. Schroders does not solicit investments from retail clients or request personal information over the telephone. We are in contact with the relevant financial authorities as well as the police, and are closely monitoring this situation.

If you have any concerns about a proposed investment related to Schroders please contact us on Financial Crime  (+44(0)20 7658 4004) or email to abuse@schroders.com  before you take any action. You can additionally review the Financial Conduct Authority’s ScamSmart website.
