MFSA Warning - Hillwood Limited - Clone

15 Jul 2021 09:00 | Anonymous
The Malta Financial Services Authority (“MFSA” or “the Authority”) has become aware of an entity operating under the name of Hillwood Limited (“the Entity”) which has an internet presence at https://www.hwlimited.com/. This website is making unauthorised use of a similar name and reference to the registered office address of a Maltese registered company, Hillwood Limited (C 74031).
The entity presents itself as “a specialist asset manager” and an insurance company which provides “customers with individual insurance solutions and professional service.”
The Authority would like to inform the public that https://www.hwlimited.com/ is NOT a Maltese registered company NOR licensed or otherwise authorised by the MFSA to provide any financial services which are required to be licensed or otherwise authorised under Maltese law. Additionally, https://www.hwlimited.com/ has NO association with Hillwood Limited (C 74031).
The website https://www.hwlimited.com/ therefore appears to be a clone of the legitimate company and the public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the false entity.
The MFSA would like to remind consumers of financial services not to enter into any financial services transaction unless they have ascertained that the entity with whom the transaction is being made is authorised to provide such services by the MFSA or another reputable financial services regulator. A list of entities licensed by the MFSA can be viewed on the official website of the Authority.
For more information on clone companies please refer to the Scam Detection Guidelines issued by the MFSA/. If you are a victim of a scam or think you might be dealing with an unauthorised entity or any other type of financial scam, first of all stop all transactions with the company and contact the MFSA as soon as a suspicion arises.
