The Jersey Financial Services Commission (the “Commission”) issues this public statement underArticle 25(d) of the Financial Services Law. This statement is made in order to warn investors and others against dealing with unauthorised financial service providers. Hudson Knight has not received authorisation to conduct financial
service business within the meaning of the Financial Services Law.
It appears to the Commission that Hudson Knight, is falsely purporting to trade from an address of Kensington Chambers, 46-50 Kensington Place, St Helier, Jersey, JE2 3PA and is carrying on or holding out that it is carrying on financial services business in Jersey when it is not authorised to do so pursuant to the provisions of the Financial Services Law.
The Commission wishes the following to be known:
1. Hudson Knight has never been registered, nor applied for registration, under the Financial Services Law. Therefore any financial service business, as defined in Article 2 of the Financial Services Law and carried out by Hudson Knight since 1 July 1999, is in breach of Article 7 of the Financial Services Law; and
2. Hudson Knight is not connected in any way to Grant Thornton Limited, a firm trading from Kensington Chambers, 46-50 Kensington Place, St Helier, Jersey, JE1 1ET.
3. From documentation held by the Commission, it would appear that Hudson Knight displays the warning signs of being set up for a fraudulent purpose.
All regulated businesses in Jersey are listed on the Commission’s website at the following address: http://www.jerseyfsc.org/the_commission/regulated_entities/index.asp
Any person who has had dealings with Hudson Knight is requested to contact the Commission.
