REASONS FOR ACTION
By a First Supervisory Notice dated 26 June 2019, Mr Kane’s Part 4A permission
was varied by removing all regulated activities with immediate effect, on the basis
that Mr Kane was failing to satisfy the Threshold Conditions.
7. Specifically, Mr Kane is not a fit and proper person in relation to the regulated
activities he seeks to carry on, and is therefore failing to satisfy the suitability
Threshold Condition. Mr Kane’s failings included: (i) not submitting his regulatory
returns for the period ending 31 March 2018 and (ii) not being open and co-
operative in all of his dealings with the Authority, in that he failed to keep the
Authority informed of matters of which it would reasonably expect to be made
aware – namely a criminal conviction against him resulting in his imprisonment.
Mr Kane’s failure to respond to any of the Authority’s reminders to submit his
regulatory returns, or to respond to an information requirement sent to him by the
Authority meant that Mr Kane also thereby failed to comply with Principle 11 of the
Authority's Principles for Businesses and to satisfy the Authority that he is ready,
willing and organised to comply with the requirements and standards under the
Section 55J of the Act provides that if, as a result of a variation of a Part 4A
permission under that section, there are no longer any regulated activities for which
the authorised person concerned has permission, the Authority must, once it is
satisfied that it is no longer necessary to keep the permission in force, cancel it.
The Authority has concluded that it is so satisfied and accordingly has a duty to
cancel Mr Kane’s Part 4A permission.
The decision which gave rise to the obligation to give this Final Notice was made
by the Regulatory Decisions Committee.
This Final Notice is given to Mr Kane in accordance with section 390(1) of the Act.

Notice relates as the Authority considers appropriate. The information may be

Authority may not publish information if such publication would, in the opinion of
the Authority, be unfair to Mr Kane or prejudicial to the interest of consumers.
The Authority intends to publish such information about the matter to which this
Final Notice relates as it considers appropriate.
