NOTICE is hereby given that an electronic hearing will be held before a hearing panel of the Central Regional Council (“Hearing Panel”) of the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (“MFDA”) on January 20, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern), or as soon thereafter as the hearing can be held, to consider whether, pursuant to section 24.4 of By-law No. 1 of the MFDA, the Hearing Panel should accept the settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) entered into between Staff of the MFDA and Jason Dickout (the “Respondent”).
The subject matter of the proposed Settlement Agreement concerns matters for which the Respondent may be disciplined as an Approved Person of the MFDA, pursuant to sections 20 and 24.1.1 of By-law No. 1 of the MFDA.
- The proposed Settlement Agreement concerns allegations that the Respondent:
- between December 6, 2018 and December 10, 2018, signed the signature of two clients on three account forms, and submitted the account forms to the Member for processing, contrary to MFDA Rule 2.1.1; and
- between February 20, 2019 and February 26, 2019, misled the Member during its investigation into his conduct when he falsely stated that clients signed account forms, when the Respondent had signed the client’s signature on the account forms, contrary to MFDA Rule 2.1.1.
- MFDA settlement hearings are typically held in the absence of the public pursuant to section 20.5 of MFDA By-law No. 1 and Rule 15.2(2) of the MFDA Rules of Procedure.
