Warning Notice Statement 17/4

The Financial Conduct Authority (the FCA) gave an individual a Warning Notice on 26 January
2017 proposing to take action in respect of the conduct summarised in this statement.

IMPORTANT: A Warning Notice is not the final decision of the FCA. The
individual has the right to make representations to the Regulatory Decisions
Committee (RDC) which, in the light of those representations, will decide on
the appropriate action and whether to issue a decision notice. The RDC is a
Committee of the FCA board which decides whether the FCA should give
certain statutory notices described as within its scope by the FCA’s Handbook.

If a decision notice is issued, the individual has the right to refer the matter to
the Upper Tribunal which would reach an independent decision on the
appropriate action for the FCA to take, if any.

If either the RDC or the Upper Tribunal decides that no further action should
be taken, the FCA will publish a notice of discontinuance provided it has the
individual’s consent.

The following is a summary of the reasons why the FCA gave the individual a Warning

The FCA considers that, over the relevant period the individual, who was employed at a
bank improperly disclosed inside information, in contravention of section 118(3) of the
Financial Services and Markets Act.

In particular, the FCA considers that the individual:

Was an approved person and held a position of responsibility and trust;

Was experienced and well trained in the proper handling of inside information;

Disclosed inside information over the course of an eight-month period.
