Yu Ching Wang has received disciplinary action from the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) in Hong Kong and is prohibited from re-entering the industry for 10 years.

The ban will lift on 30 November 2031, the SFC said.

The decision is the result of an investigation from the regulator which found that Wang “misrepresented her academic qualifications” to Bank Julius Baer in 2012 and Bank of Singapore in 2018, where she worked as a relationship manager.

It is not clear from the watchdog’s statement what misrepresentations were made.

The SFC said: “The SFC considers that Wang is not fit and proper to be a regulated person as her conduct is plainly dishonest, and calls into question her character and reliability, and her ability to carry on regulated activities competently and honestly.

“In deciding the sanction against Wang, the SFC took into account all relevant circumstances, including her otherwise clean disciplinary record.”

The matter was referred to the SFC by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.
