Dolfin Finance Ltd – What Can Be Done If Assets Are Affected?

Posted by: Gherson Extradition

With almost two weeks having passed since the FCA moved to impose restrictions on the business of Dolfin Financial (UK) Ltd, little additional information has come to light as to the next steps in the process. There will be investors who will be seeking answers as to the status of their investments, especially investors who will rely on those investments to satisfy the requirements of their Tier 1 (Investor) visas.

Given the uncertainty surrounding the situation and the lack of publicly available resources from the FCA as to how to proceed, many investors will be keen to see how they can secure information about their assets. In many cases, thoughts may turn to retrieving funds in order to secure investments elsewhere. The question which arises is how?

The FCA advises that their consent will be needed for any individual to deal with any assets held by Dolfin. With little more to go on, it appears to be an impenetrable wall that cannot be breached. In truth, there are a number of actions which can be taken to move matters forward, but it is likely that a proactive approach will be needed. More detail may be forthcoming from the FCA in the days and weeks to come, but in the absence of a timeline, this is a matter of conjecture.

For those who are seeking advice on how to preserve their assets, our expert team of multi-disciplinary lawyers, with vast experience of immigration matters, and also in dealing with the regulatory authorities, are on hand to assist.

If you have been impacted in any way by the FCA’s announcements regarding Dolfin and would like to review your personal circumstances, please do not hesitate to contact us.
