MFSA Warning – Zenith Finance Ltd – Clone

Updated on

The Malta Financial Services Authority (“MFSA” or “the Authority”) has become aware of a website which has been branded with the same name and details as those used by a local registered company, but which website is not in fact linked in any way to the licensed entity. The website https://www.zenithfinanceltd.com/ (the “unauthorised website”) is making unauthorised use of a similar name and reference to the registered office address of a Maltese registered and licensed company, Zenith Finance Limited (C 42720) which has an internet presence at https://zenithgroup.com.mt/.

The unauthorised website claims to be “an asset management firm that is dedicated to continuous financial portfolio growth, offering clients maximum returns on their investments”.

The Authority would like to inform the public that the unauthorised website is not linked in any way to any Maltese registered company nor licensed or otherwise authorised by the MFSA to provide investment services or other  financial services in or from Malta which are required to be licensed or otherwise authorised under Maltese law. Additionally, https://www.zenithfinanceltd.com/ has no association with Zenith Finance Limited (C 42720) – https://zenithgroup.com.mt/.

The website https://www.zenithfinanceltd.com/ therefore appears to be a clone of the legitimate entity and the public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the false entity.
