CySEC announced that, at its meeting held on March 8, 2021, it decided to withdraw the CIF license of Deloitte Investment Services issued back in June 2006.
March 17, 2021 | AtoZ Markets – The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) on Wednesday confirmed that it has wholly withdrawn the Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF) License of Deloitte Investment Services Limited, which holds the authorization number 068/06.
Deloitte Investment Services applied for voluntary CIF license renunciation
The Cypriot watchdog made it clear that Deloitte Investment Services' surrender of its CIF license is entirely voluntary. The company’s decision is not, however, related to any regulatory action by the CySEC. Although the regulator didn’t state why Deloitte Investment Services has decided to say goodbye to its CIF authorization, many regulated brokers opt to voluntarily surrender their license.
However, CySEC no longer regulates Deloitte Investment Services. Hence, the company will not be able to provide investment services to Cypriot residents.
Several firms have decided to renounce their CIF authorizations
Over the past several months, the CIF authorizations of a number of online trading firms have been withdrawn. In November 2019, for instance, CySEC withdrew the license of Otkritie Capital Cyprus. The withdrawal is due to the company’s decision to expressly renounce its CIF authorization.
As AtoZ Markets reported, CySEC decided to withdraw the CIF authorization of Bogofinance Capital Markets. The regulatory move reflects the company’s decision to expressly renounce the authorization.
