Name: SpartaMatrix
Type: Unlicensed entities
Remarks: The company gave an address in Hong Kong which is a business centre. It appears to target UK investors. Someone claiming to be a representative of SpartaMatrix had approached investors to acquire shares of this company. Neither the representative nor the company has ever been registered with or licensed by the SFC to conduct any regulated activity. Investors are advised to be extremely cautious in those transactions. The company maintained a bank account in Hong Kong in the name of Spartamatrix Incorporated Ltd. The company appeared to also use the name of Sparta Matrix International.

Note: Unlicensed entities often use names similar to legitimate companies to confuse investors.
Unlicensed entities

Sometimes entities appear to target Hong Kong investors whilst not having been licensed to carry out regulated activities in Hong Kong. They often adopt names similar to legitimate financial institutions to confuse investors. Alternatively, such unlicensed entities may provide financial investment trading platforms on the Internet. If you deal with a company which is not licensed by the SFC, you may not be protected by the regulatory framework enforced by the SFC.

Deal only with licensed entities and hang up on cold callers. To check whether an entity is an SFC licensee, visit our Public Register of Licensed Persons and Registered Institutions.
