SFC bans Masy Lo Mee Chi for eight months

31 August 2020

The SFC has banned Ms Masy Lo Mee Chi, a former client advisor of UBS AG Hong Kong Branch (UBS), for eight months from 29 August 2020 to 28 April 2021.

An SFC investigation found that when Lo was handling the request of a trust’s settlor (Settlor) in July 2017, she attempted to mislead the trustee into believing that the Settlor had signed an amended request letter in connection with the purchase of a fund for the trust account.Without the Settlor’s approval, Lo appended a scanned version of the Settlor’s signature from an earlier request letter signed by the Settlor, and submitted it to the trustee as if it was signed by the Settlor.

The SFC considers that Lo’s conduct was dishonest and calls into question her fitness and properness to be a licensed or registered person.In deciding the sanction against Lo, the SFC took into account all relevant circumstances, including her otherwise clean disciplinary record.
