FCA notice and restrictions

The FCA issued a first supervisory notice to Nexus Independent Financial Advisers Limited and Nexus Investment Managers Limited in January 2023.

The FCA said it “…has very serious concerns about the conduct of the Firms in that the Authority is concerned that the Firms’ sole Director may have deducted sums from clients without authorisation or without their knowledge.”

The regulator also placed restrictions on the firm in January 2023 regarding assets and instructed the firm to “immediately cease carrying on all regulated activities for which it has a Part 4A permission” other than where it has the express written consent of the FCA.
