Clifford Chance Reviews DIFC Court Ruling Against Bank Sarasin-Alpen ME Limited

The DIFC Court of First Instance found Bank Sarasin & Co. Ltd. with no registered presence in the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC), and its Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) authorised DIFC subsidiary, Bank Sarasin-Alpen ME Limited (Sarasin-Alpen), in breach of the DIFC Regulatory Law with liability to pay compensation to the members of the Khorafi family who purchased $200 million of structured products, which were financed, in part, by loans from Bank Sarasin and from another bank. In a detailed commentary, law firm Clifford Chance reviews what this ruling means for regulated firms in the DIFC. The law firm said the findings against Bank Sarasin have fundamental consequences for the conduct of financial services business in or from the DIFC. The model used by Bank Sarasin, involving a DFSA Category 4 licensed firm (in this case, Sarasin-Alpen) advising on and arranging investments and financial products sold from/booked in a foreign booking centre is popular. More DIFC originated business is booked in foreign locations than in the DIFC. The Court held that individuals employed by Sarasin-Alpen (not by Bank Sarasin) were in fact providing financial services for the unlicensed Bank Sarasin, even though the Claimants never entered the DIFC and Bank Sarasin had no registered presence in the DIFC.
