British Columbia Securities Commission: Portfolio Manager Agrees to Pay $12,000 for Lack of Compliance and Failing to Maintain Minimum Regulatory Capital

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 23, 2012) - As part of a settlement agreement with the British Columbia Securities Commission, Kilburn Ogilvie Waymann Investment Management Ltd. (KOWIM) and Trevor G. Kilburn have agreed to pay $12,000 to the commission for failing to establish and maintain an adequate compliance system, and failing to maintain a minimum level of regulatory capital.

The agreement states that a compliance audit conducted by the BCSC in June 2011 found that KOWIM, a portfolio manager registered in British Columbia and located in Kelowna, failed to maintain minimum regulatory capital between September 29, 2010 and July 14 2011. Additionally, the audit revealed that the company had failed to establish and maintain an adequate compliance system.

Kilburn, a Kelowna resident, is registered as an advising representative, director and officer of KOWIM. At all material times, Kilburn was KOWIM's ultimate designated person and its chief compliance officer.

The agreement also notes that KOWIM cooperated fully with commission staff during and after the audit, and acted quickly to correct the specific shortfalls identified.

The B.C. Securities Commission is the independent provincial government agency responsible for regulating trading in securities within the province.
