Melissa Caddick and Maliver found to have engaged in unlicensed conduct

The Federal Court has found Melissa Caddick and her company, Maliver Pty Limited (Maliver), carried on a financial services business without holding an Australian financial services licence (AFSL).

The collection and distribution of assets would be handled by the receivers and liquidators, subject to the Court’s oversight. 

The Court found Caddick operated without an AFSL from about October 2012 until about November 2020, while Maliver operated without an AFSL from about June 2013 and until November 2020.

No doubt that masterful investigation and wonderful work from ASIC 8 years after the crime started and 2 years after ASIC were informed then cost Advisers another few $$$$$million in Adviser levies.
What a freaking corrupt and stupid system Frydenberg has given Advisers.
