FCA decides to ban Tom Hayes
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has decided to prohibit Tom Hayes from performing any function in relation to any regulated activity in the financial services industry.
The FCA considers that Mr Hayes is not a fit and proper person as a result of his conviction for conspiracy to defraud in relation to the manipulation of Yen LIBOR.
Mr Hayes has referred the FCA’s decision to the Upper Tribunal. Therefore, the decision has not taken effect pending the determination by the Tribunal.
Following the referral, the FCA applied to have Mr Hayes’ reference struck out and Mr Hayes applied to prevent publication of the FCA’s Decision Notice and to delay the hearing of the proceedings on the basis that he has referred his conviction to the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC).
The Tribunal has decided to delay the proceedings pending the CCRC’s decision.
