” Applicant Fined $1500 for Providing False Information in License Application to HK SFC “

The applicant, Mr Lui Ho Yeung, pleaded guilty to two counts of making false or misleading representations in support of his licence applications to the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC).

The SFC expects applicants to make complete, true and correct disclosure of all information submitted with any licence application.  Failure to do so may affect their fitness and properness to be licensed.

Under section 383 of the Securities and Futures Ordinance, a person commits an offence if he in a licensing application makes a representation that is false or misleading in a material particular and he knows that or is reckless about that.

Applicants are required to disclose prior criminal convictions including those to which the Rehabilitation of Offenders Ordinance applies.
