FCA plans to ban Barclays Wealth man over destroyed report

The regulator said Tinney ‘should be publicly censured and banned from carrying out any senior management or significant influence functions in any regulated financial service provider.’

The FCA’s decision is based on allegations Tinney destroyed an internal report which was critical of conduct within the bank’s US wealth division back in 2013.

Tinney contests the allegations and disputes the FCA’s decision. He has referred the matter to the Upper Tribunal at which he and the FCA will present their cases. Accordingly, the decision notice has no effect pending the determination by the tribunal.

As regards the public censure, the tribunal will determine what the appropriate action is for the FCA to take in relation to the matter. This decision will be made public on its website.

Tinney left Barclays in 2013 have been there since 2009 following the allegations. He now works for an online gaming business.
