The PIA has terminated the individual registration of Christopher David
Cundell, a director with IFA Wilman & Lodge Financial Services of 12 Otley
Street, Skipton, North Yorkshire.
The regulator says Cundell forged the signature of a client on a document
he submitted to the PIA ombudsman. He did so without the client's knowledge
and with the ultimate objective of seeking to ensure the client's claim to
the ombudsman would fail.
The PIA says taking disciplinary action of this nature is quite rare and
cannot cite a similar instance in the last three years.
