Investor Alert Malaysia

It has come to our attention that the current and previous names and brand identities of our companies Aberdeen Standard Investments (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and Aberdeen Standard Islamic Investments (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, along with those of affiliated Aberdeen and Aberdeen Standard Investments companies, are being used illegally in the Asia-Pacific region to solicit investments.

We would like to advise members of the public to be wary of individuals impersonating Aberdeen Standard Investments’ representatives and offering fake investment opportunities. If you have received such communications via telephone, text messages, WhatsApp, Facebook messenger, Facebook sponsored post, or a Facebook page, do not continue the conversation. We do not offer our products/ services in this way. Any third party making such offers has no links with Aberdeen Standard Investments. These are attempts at fraud, the investments being offered will either not exist or in fact be worthless. If something seems too good to be true it often is. We continue to report these incidents to the relevant local regulators and authorities.

In addition, please note that we will NEVER request personal information such as identification number, banking details, credit card details and/or passwords.

Aberdeen Standard Investments will not be responsible for losses that members of the public may suffer as a result of approaches from fraudulent individuals. We reserve the right to take legal action against any parties that infringe our intellectual property rights or associate our identity and trademark with any unlawful activities. Anyone who has been a victim of fraud should immediately seek assistance from their local law enforcement office.
