Investor alert: VHNX is not licensed to offer derivative trading services in New Zealand

Page last updated: 13 May 2022

FMA is concerned that the website vhnx.com may be operating a scam. We have received reports that representatives from VHNX are cold-calling New Zealand residents with investment offers when it is not authorised to do so. We have also received reports of people being unable to withdraw their funds.

The entity does not hold a Derivative Issuer License and is not a registered financial service provider in New Zealand or licensed by the FMA. As such, they are not permitted to offer derivative trading services to New Zealand retail customers. We recommend exercising caution when dealing with this entity.
