Court winds up Melissa Caddick’s financial services company

Investors that lost millions to Melissa Caddick may be a step closer to getting some of their money back after the Federal Court ordered Ms Caddick’s financial services company be wound up.

The Federal Court has confirmed that Melissa Caddick and her company, Maliver, carried on a financial services business without holding an Australian Financial Services Licence, contrary to section 911A of the Corporations Act.

As such, the court has ordered Maliver be wound up, with Bruce Gleeson and Daniel Soire of Jones Partners to be appointed as liquidators. The pair have also been appointed receivers of Ms Caddick’s property. 

According to an ASIC statement, the collection and distribution of assets will be handled by the receivers and liquidators, subject to the court’s oversight.
