EG 11.4.1

EG 11.4.2

1As well as obtaining information through the appointment of investigators, the FCA may consider using its power under section 166 of the Act to require a firm to provide a report prepared by a skilled person or appoint a skilled person itself to prepare a report.

  1. (1)

    determine the amount of profits which have been made by the firm; or

  2. (2)

    establish whether the conduct of the firm has caused any losses or other adverse effects to qualifying persons and/or the extent of such losses; or

  3. (3)

    determine how any amounts to be paid by the firm are to be distributed between qualifying persons.
