Finansinspektionen (FI) is withdrawing the authorisation of securities company Nord Fondkommision AB (Nord) due to severe deficiencies in the company’s advisory activities and other areas. This decision means that the company must cease all regulated activities. As a result, it may no longer provide financial advice or sell financial products. The decision will be presented by FI Director General Erik Thedéen and Chief Legal Counsel Eric Leijonram at a press conference today, Wednesday, 13 October, at 10:00 AM.
Finansinspektionen (FI) is withdrawing all of Nord Fondkommission AB’s (Nord) authorisations due to severe deficiencies, in part in the company’s advisory services.
Finansinspektionen has decided to open an investigation into EQT AB for suspected breach of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) in conjunction with a delayed disclosure of inside information. FI’s handling of this matter is thus entering a new phase.
On Friday, 24 September, until Sunday, 26 September, TRS 2 will be closed for maintenance.
On 7 September, FI received a notification from EQT AB regarding a delayed disclosure of inside information. On 14 September, FI requested that the company submit an account of the circumstances that served as a basis for the delayed disclosure. FI will analyse the response from EQT AB in order to decide if there are grounds for further action.
Pursuant to Article 93 (7) and (8) of Directive 2009/65/EC, a foreign UCITS established in another Member State authorised for marketing in Sweden must submit to Finansinspektionen annual updates of KIID(s) or updated KIID(s) of share class(es) authorised for distribution in Sweden.
