  • It is not possible to determine the full extent of Goldman’s liabilities
  • On 28 March 2018 Goldman was wound up by the Court in the public interest, with the grounds in the petition summarised as: o trading with a lack of transparency/lack of stewardship, o trading with a lack of commercial probity, o failure to co-operate and o carrying out regulated activities without authorisation by the Financial Conduct Authority Furthermore, Goldman’s website stated that clients’ personal information was secure and protected by a cybersecurity provider. However the cybersecurity provider has confirmed to the Official Receiver that they had no contract with Goldman. Any party who entered personal information via the website had therefore been misled in respect of its protection.
