The Capital Markets Authority announces issuance of a Disciplinary Board Resolution passed in its meeting held on Thursday 09/05/2019 on violation No. (16/2019 Disciplinary Board) (13/2019 Authority) filed against:

Abdullatif Mohammed Al-Aiban (Grant Thornton Al Qatami, Al Aiban & Partners)
 “The Company is fined an amount of KWD 2000 for the failure in completely separating between audit teams and advisory services teams.”

The company provided both advisory and external audit for the same clients at the same time.

In this regard, the CMA emphasizes the implementation of CMA Law and its Executive Bylaws on all persons dealing in securities activities, and urges them to comply with these rules in order to promote investors' confidence, create a sound investment environment, and implement the Law according to the principles of fairness, transparency, and integrity in line with the best international practice.
