RESTRICTIONS ON OUR ACTIVITIES

Blankstone Sington has requested of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) a voluntary agreement (VREQ) to restrict how it carries out its investment business.  The board has made the request because of a loss of several experienced staff who cannot easily be replaced.  This has caused difficulties for the company to provide its normal standard of service.  The company is actively recruiting for replacement staff.

The voluntary restrictions took effect on 16th November 2021.

Our clients’ money and assets remain safe and are being held in full accordance with the FCA’s rules.

THE VOLUNTARY REQUIREMENTS

We are restricted from disposing of our assets without the written consent of the FCA. This requirement does not apply to disposals made during the ordinary course of our business. For example, we are not restricted from making our usual payments to our suppliers and our salary payments to our employees.

The requirements also restrict us from accepting client money and custody assets from existing clients, and from opening accounts for new clients, without the written consent of the FCA.  There are exceptions from this requirement, for example movements associated with open trades and positions of our customers.

The Company is in regular dialogue with the FCA and external advisers to reach a successful outcome to the situation. At the moment we are unable to confirm when these restrictions will be lifted.

As always, we remain committed to our clients and will keep you informed as the situation evolves. We would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding.
