10:49 EDTGSGoldman Sachs Asia unit censured by Hong Kong regulator
The Securities and Futures Commission, SFC, has publicly censured Goldman Sachs Asia for breaches of the Code on Takeovers and Mergers whilst acting as a financial advisor to Wing Hang Bank, Limited in relation to a voluntary general offer for the bank. Goldman Sachs' conduct fell far short of the standards expected of a financial advisor under the Takeovers Code in that between 8 November 2013 and 6 January 2014: Goldman Sachs executed 111 trades in the securities of Wing Hang Bank without making the requisite dealing disclosures and no prior consent was obtained as required for 26 of these trades ; and Goldman Sachs failed to comply with the restrictions on issue and distribution of research reports in relation to the research reports it published on Wing Hang Bank. In deciding the sanction, the SFC took into account Goldman Sachs' cooperation and self-reporting of the breaches. Reference Link
