Clarification regarding the regulatory status of Zeniq Technologies

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) wishes to clarify the regulatory status of a company operating in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Zeniq Technologies Ltd (Zeniq Technologies)

On a number of websites, it is stated that Zeniq Technologies has “legal status” under the jurisdiction of the DIFC and is licensed by the DFSA.

The DFSA informs you that Zeniq Technologies is not, and has never been, authorised by the DFSA to provide financial services in or from the DIFC.

Zeniq Technologies is a company incorporated in the DIFC and is permitted to carry out certain non-financial services activities in or from the DIFC.  However, as the company is not licensed by the DFSA, it is not permitted to carry out financial services in or from the DIFC.

You should check the regulatory status of any company you are dealing with in the DIFC before entering into any financial services activity with that company You can do this by checking the list of regulated Firms and Authorised Individuals licensed by the DFSA that is available on the DFSA's PUBLIC REGISTER

If you have any queries about the type of activities that non-regulated DIFC-incorporated companies carry out in or from the DIFC, you should direct your enquiry to the DIFC Authority on +971 4 362 2222.  If your enquiry is about the status of a regulated entity and about the type of activities that DFSA licensed firms can carry out in or from the DIFC, then you should direct your enquiry to the DFSA on +971 4 362 1500.  If you have a complaint about a firm in relation to financial services activities being conducted in or from the DIFC then you may direct your complaint to DFSA Complaints by accessing the complaints portal on the DFSA website which can be found HERE.
