The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) hereby announces that, on 9 June 2010, it imposed an order for incremental penalty payments on: Fib Trading Ltd. (FIB), established at 1 Avlonos Street, Maria House, 1075 Nicosia on Cyprus.
The order for incremental penalty payments was imposed because FIB has failed to comply with the request for information from the AFM. FIB was requested to provide information, because the suspicion exists that this institution provided or continues to provide investment service and/or performed or continues to perform investment activities without holding the required AFM licence.
FIB did not supply the requested information by the deadline and is therefore required to make incremental penalty payments. The requested information still needs to be provided to the AFM.
If you have any questions or comments you can contact the AFM’s Financial Markets Information Line on: 0900-5400 540 (5 eurocents per minute).
