July 16, 2019

Please be aware that a potential fraud issue has been brought to our attention.  A clone entity, calling itself ‘Austin Finance’, has been issuing marketing materials and cold calling members of the public offering investment opportunities.

Please note that whilst there is an ‘Austin Finance’ entity that relates to the BNP Paribas Group, this entity:

  • does not conduct business with clients
  • does not offer investment opportunities
  • has no connection to these fraudulent marketing materials or investments.

Please do not interact in any way with any party that claims to represent ‘Austin Finance’.

BNP Paribas has alerted the relevant authorities and law enforcement agencies of this matter.  For more information, please refer to this notice issued by the FCA on clone firms.
