The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has revoked the licenses of 53 Fund Management Companies.

SEC, in a statement explained that the revocation follows the companies’ failure to “return client funds which remain locked up and in a number of cases, have even folded up their operations.”

Essentially, they have failed to perform their functions efficiently, honestly and fairly and in some cases are in continuing breach of the requirements under relevant securities laws, rules or conditions, despite opportunities provided to them by the SEC within a reasonable period of time to resolve all regulatory breaches. The SEC has concluded after extensive engagement with these institutions that their continuous existence in the light of their conduct poses severe risks to the stability of the capital market and to the interests of investors,” the statement further explained.

The action was taken pursuant to Section 122 (2) (b) of the Securities Industry Act, 2019 (Act 929) which authorizes SEC to revoke the license of a market operator under some circumstances.

SEC also explained that the revocation is “in accordance with its mandate of protecting investors and the integrity of the capital market.”

SEC and its authorized agents will secure the premises of the affected companies for further investigations under section 26 of the Act.

In addition, the SEC has notified the Registrar of Companies of the revocation of these licenses and has requested that the Registrar petitions the High Court to commence winding-up proceedings against these companies under the Bodies Corporate (Official Liquidations) Act, 1963 (Act 180),” the statement added.
