LONDON, 6 May, 2011 – Panmure Gordon & Co., a leading independent institutional stockbroker and investment bank, is aware that private individuals in the UK and abroad are receiving cold calls purporting to come from a representative of our firm. These calls are fraudulent and under no circumstances should the recipient provide any personal details to the caller.

- Panmure Gordon & Co is an institutional stockbroker only – we do not provide stockbroking services to private clients.

- The caller will ultimately seek to have you remit funds, usually abroad. Under no circumstances should you transfer funds.

- If you believe you are a victim of fraud, please contact your local fraud prevention and investigation authorities.

- www.panmuregordon.net is a false website.
