It has come to the attention of Finansinspektionen (FI), the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, that persons claiming to represent Shaw, Edwards, Emmerson & Knight LTD LLP (SEEK Ltd. LLC/LLP), hereafter referred to as SEEK, are offering to buy the shares of Swedish investors but demanding a commission from the seller before executing the transaction.
FI has investigated the matter and has not been able to determine that SEEK is a going concern. SEEK is neither authorised by FI to conduct securities business or other financial services in Sweden nor under FI’s supervision. FI has not received any notification of cross-border activities from other EEA countries. SEEK is also not authorised to provide financial services according to the supervisory authority of the country in which the company claims to be domiciled.
FI warns investors and others about doing business with firms that are not authorised to offer financial services. The list of companies authorised to offer financial services can be found at www.fi.se under Company Register.
