Dolfin Financial (UK) Ltd

In special administration 30 June 2021

FRN: 552894

Dolfin is an independent wealth management firm. It provides investment management, investment advisory, execution-only and custody services.

On 12 March 2021, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) imposed restrictions on Dolfin. This meant it could not conduct its regulated activities in the normal way. Dolfin’s Board of Directors began an orderly wind-down of the company.

On 30 June 2021 it was placed in Special Administration following a court application. 

The court application was made after it became clear that the company’s wind down should take place within a formal insolvency process.  Adam Stephens and Kevin Ley of Smith & Williamson LLP were appointed Joint Special Administrators.

Further details can be found at the Joint Special Administrators’ website.

You can also read details of the Special Administration on the FCA website.

At this point, FSCS is in the early stages of investigating whether there are any claims that meet the qualifying conditions for compensation. As part of this investigation, we're working closely with the Joint Special Administrators.
