FCA has banned Matthew Creed from performing any regulated activity. Mr Creed had been an approved person at a firm from 2005 – 2019, and was also the director of an unauthorised company from 2002- 2013. In 2012 he dishonestly executed eight transfers removing over £150,000 from that company’s accounts. He was disqualified from being a company director in 2016 and became aware he was the subject of a criminal investigation. He did not tell FCA either of these things.
