5.9 5.9 Financial penalties
We may seek to impose a financial penalty under section 232 of FSMR on a person whom we consider has contravened a provision of the FSMR or the Rules. We may impose a financial penalty in any amount considered appropriate, provided such amount is not less than 5,000 UAE Dirhams and not exceeding the higher of 50 million UAE Dirhams or 10% of the value of the relevant transaction.
In determining whether to impose a financial penalty, and the quantum of the financial penalty, we will take into consideration the circumstances of the conduct and will be guided by the penalty guidance set out in Chapter 6 of this document.
Prior to making a decision, we will follow the procedures set out in Part 21 of the FSMR (see also Chapter 7 of this document for guidance).
