The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) has suspended the relevant particulars1 of Mr SO Yiu Wing and Mr NG Chun Mi from the register maintained under Section 20(1)(ea) of the Banking Ordinance for one month from 23 September 2011 to 22 October 2011.
The disciplinary actions follow an investigation by the HKMA, which discovered that Mr SO and Mr NG intentionally circumvented their employer’s internal procedures to cover their mistakes in April 2007 by causing other clients to take up their error trades2.
In deciding the disciplinary sanction, the HKMA has taken into account that the clients involved suffered no or an insignificant amount of financial loss and both Mr SO and Mr NG have clean disciplinary records.
