BOYD-GREY Ian Andrew
The Committee found that Mr. BOYD-GREY Ian Andrew (“Mr. Boyd-Grey”) had initially advised the client that the Establishment Fee of the policy in dispute would be 1.75%. The Committee was of the view that such advice may have been a matter of negligence or deliberate misrepresentation but when it became clear beyond doubt that the Establishment Fee was 2.5%, Mr. Boyd-Grey had a clear obligation to inform the client of that in order for him to decide whether to proceed with the product at that stage. In not informing him of the correct charges, Mr. Boyd-Grey was putting his own interests and those of MLI Limited, given that he was its alter ego, above the interests of the client. To that extent, the Committee reached the conclusion that both Mr. Boyd-Grey and MLI Limited failed to conduct their business with utmost good faith and integrity. With regards to the penalty, the Disciplinary Committee directed that Mr. Boyd-Grey be prohibited from being a director or shareholder of, or associated in any manner with, or registered as a Chief Executive or Technical Representative in respect of, any Member of the CIB for a period of five years.
