The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) has fined CIF Capital Com SV Investments Ltd. 10,000 euros for non-compliance with article 16(2) of Regulation (EU) 596/2014 on market abuse.
In January 2022, CySEC fined Atlantic Securities Ltd for violating Article 16(2). CySEC fined Atlantic 3,000 euros only, a significantly lower amount than what they fined CIF Capital Com SV Investments Ltd.
CySEC’s fine of 10,000 euros to CIF Capital Com SV Investments Ltd for non-compliance with article 16(2) of Regulation (EU) 596/2014 on market abuse is significant. It highlights the importance of compliance with this regulation and sends a message to other market participants that non-compliance will not be tolerated.
It shows that CySEC is taking a tougher stance on companies that fail to comply with this regulation and clearly states they would not tolerate non-compliance.
Market participants should take note of this decision and ensure that they comply with all relevant regulations to avoid being fined by CySEC.
