Former Kaz Capital adviser banned
ASIC has banned a former Kaz Capital adviser from providing financial services for six years following trading and selling concerns.
ASIC’s concerns related to Mr Conford’s time at Kaz Capital between 2014 and 2017 and were related to buying and selling listed securities on clients’ accounts without authorisation and trading contracts for difference in a personal capacity that conflicted with client interests.
Ultimately, ASIC also found that Mr Cornford's actions had or were likely to have the effect of creating or causing a misleading appearance with respect to the market for or the price for trading in shares.
The commission also found Mr Cornford provided a financial service which the AFSL of Kaz Capital did not cover the provision of.
