The Hong Kong SFC considers that Mr Cheung Man Chit failed to act honestly, with due skill, care and diligence, and in the best interests of his clients.  Mr Cheung Man Chit’s conduct was prejudicial to the interests of his clients and employers as it prevented Emperor from ensuring that the account opening document was properly signed by the client and client information was accurately recorded, adequately safeguarding client assets, and properly monitoring and supervising clients’ trading activities.

The SFC also found that Mr Cheung Man Chit failed to inform the SFC and Emperor of his directorship and proprietorship of two companies that he owned.

 

The disciplinary action follows an SFC investigation for the period June 2013 to February 2018:

  • submitted false client documents and information to Emperor, and stated in a client account opening document that he witnessed the client’s signature when in fact he had not done as claimed;
  • transferred around $3.2 million client money through his personal and related bank accounts and inputted incorrect information in Emperor’s payment or deposit forms to facilitate the transfers; and
  • used a client’s password to place trade orders in the client’s online trading account with Emperor.
