  1. This young fellow sounds like a cat from World Financial Group. No Education, some exams/certifications. Something is not right here Vin.

  2. I knew there was something fishy about this young fellow…. He works for Holborn Assets

    FCA crackdowns on Holborn Assets’ UK division over pension transfers
    The Financial Conduct Authority has ordered the UK division of Holborn Assets to cease all regulated pension transfer business introduced by overseas advisers with immediate effect.
    UAE-based Holborn Assets is the latest international financial advisory firm to get caught up in a UK regulatory crackdown on pension transfers.
    The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has ordered Holborn’s UK division to cease all regulated pension transfer business introduced by overseas advisers with immediate effect.
    Holborn Assets has headquarters in Dubai, with offices in both the UK and South Africa. However, the FCA order only applies to the regulated activities of the UK entity, Holborn Assets, in providing advice to transfer clients out of safeguarded pension scheme benefits.
    Simon Parker, chief operating officer of Holborn Assets in the UAE, said the FCA’s move has no relevance to the company’s UAE customers. “Holborn Assets Insurance Brokers LLC is licensed by the UAE Insurance Authority for whom its business as usual,” he said.
    According to Holborn in the UAE, its UK entity Holborn Assets Limited’s licence was voluntarily suspended along with over 80 other companies and during this period it was in regular contact with the FCA to agree a process for it to offer pension transfer advice again in the future.
