10 years’ jail for Sherwin Financial Planners boss
Former principal of Sherwin Financial Planners and chairman of Wickham Securities Bradley Sherwin has been sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment on 25 charges.
ASIC previously brought numerous charges of fraud by dishonestly causing detriment, relating to a number of clients of Sherwin Financial Planning, and one charge of breaching his duties as a director of Wickham Securities against Sherwin.
According to the regulator, Sherwin’s fraudulent actions cost clients nearly $10 million between May 2009 and December 2012.
He was sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment on 14 November 2017.
“Mr Sherwin's actions caused great hardship to his clients and their families,” said ASIC commissioner John Price.
“Today's outcome should serve as a warning to company directors and financial advisers who breach community standards – the consequences are severe.”
