According to the FCA, UKITI received the majority of an £800, 000 commission rebate, plus upfront fees of 5% from investors, a 25% performance fee and a 0.5% annual algorithmic rental fee.
The fund generated losses of around £185, 000 in January 2016 and £221, 000 in October 2016, however these losses were unrealised. In addition, the fund was marketed to potential investors using performance data based on realised trading profits and losses alone.
While there is little information available on the Momentum fund, also designed by UKITI, the FCA said it appears SCM provided a similar service to this small FX fund as it provided to FX Perpetual.
Behind UKITI is a man called Iain Stamp, who was formerly the chief executive of Integrity Financial Solutions. This company, which was established by Stamp in 1998, was censured by the Financial Services Authority in 2010. Because the firm was in liquidation at the time, the regulator waived a £350, 000 fine.
The regulator noted that the distribution of the fees suggests that UKITI is actually acting as the investment manager of the fund, not SCM. A review of 25% of client files also showed that none of the investors had received a suitability assessment.
