Fraud Alert - 6 August 2021
Schroder Investment Management Australia Limited ("Schroders Australia") is aware of the risk that fraudulent websites, email addresses, social media pages or advertisements may hold themselves out to be a website or email account operated by Schroders Australia or another member of the Schroders Group (collectively, “Schroders”). We have become aware of scams in which unknown persons claiming to be representatives of Schroders have been making fraudulent and unsolicited offers of shares and other securities to individuals. We have seen examples of scams that refer to high profile companies and transactions such as the recent initial public offering of shares in Robinhood Markets Inc. You should be alert to the risk of fraud when receiving any communications from people purporting to be employees or representatives of Schroders, particularly where that communication relates to an offer of a financial product or other form of investment.
Schroders would like to remind you to diligently check the authenticity and reliability of information published on websites and emails that claim to be related to Schroders or any information that claims to be issued or authorised by Schroders. It is important to stay alert to the risks of scam websites and emails.
All Schroders websites and email accounts are located on the Schroders group website domain: Schroders.com. Any websites or email accounts on other domain names that claim to represent Schroders are not authorised by Schroders and the information contained on those sites or in those emails may be false and fraudulent.
Schroders does not make unsolicited offers or requests through email, telephone, social media or other advertisements and will not contact people directly unless they initiated the contact or have an existing relationship with Schroders.
If you have encountered any suspicious incidents or have doubts about any person, platform, website or institution claiming to be associated with Schroders, please contact our Client Services team on 1300 136 471 or email us at Abuse@schroders.com.
