ASIC: Operators of unlicensed Gold Coast financial services business charged

10/08/2017 2:22:17 AM

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) announced that Jana Jaros and Jackson Laurence Malcolm Capper have appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court on charges of operating an unlicensed financial services business, following an ASIC investigation.

Ms Jaros and Mr Capper have been charged under section 911A of the Corporations Act 2001 for allegedly aiding and abetting Astra Group Pty Ltd and Old Cambridge Pty Ltd to carry on a financial services business without holding an Australian Financial Services licence.

They also face two charges each under section 1308(2) of the Corporations Act 2001 for lodging with ASIC documents containing false or misleading material.

Providing assistance to operate an unlicensed financial services business carries a potential maximum penalty of $36,000 or two years' imprisonment or both, while providing false or misleading documents carries a maximum penalty of $36,000 or five years' imprisonment or both.

This matter is being prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.

Ms Jaros and Mr Capper appeared on 7 August 2017. The matter was adjourned until 4 September 2017
