The Financial Services Authority (FSA) announced on December 8, that it fined Integrated Financial Arrangements Plc (Integrated) £3.5 million (approximately $5.5 million) for failings in relation to segregation of client money. Integrated operates Transact, one of the UK's largest wrap platforms. This is the second largest penalty imposed by the FSA for client money rule breaches.
On an inspection visit by the FSA in May 2010, it identified client money compliance failures stretching over a period of more than eight years from December 2001 to May 2010. The amount of client money held by Integrated during the period averaged £508 million (approximately $790 million).
