SEC Suspends Diamond Securities for flouting market rules

Thursday 27, May 2010

The Securities and Exchange Commission has suspended Diamond Securities Limited, an operator in the capital market, from all capital market activities.

The company was sanctioned along with all its sponsors, for flouting market rules.

A statement from the regulator on Wednesday, signed by the Head, Media, Mr. Lanre Oloyi, said the company and its sponsors were suspended following observed unprofessional conduct.

According to the commission, the company failed to execute its client’s mandate and operate its account strictly according to instructions contrary to Code 1(v) of the Code of Conduct for Capital Market Operators ”made pursuant to Rule 43 SEC Rules and Regulations as amended.”

SEC also accused Diamond Securities of conversion of its client‘s securities for the benefit of a third party, contrary to “Rule 110 SEC Rules and Regulations as amended.”

”The suspension shall remain in force until the company is cleared by the commission,” the statement said.

The Director-General, SEC, Ms. Arunma Oteh, had on assumption of office said that the commission would not hesitate to name and shame anyone found to have violated market rules, no matter how highly placed, adding, however, that people would only be accused when found guilty ”after the commission‘s usual thorough investigations.”
