FT Adviser reports that Carlisle-based adviser Quintillion Asset Management Ltd has had its permissions to carry on regulated business cancelled by the Financial Services Authority over its failure to pay fees and levies owed to the regulator.
According to a final notice published on the FSA website, Quintillion has outstanding fees of £8,407. The firm was issued with a warning notice in February of this year, which was followed by a decision notice that its permissions were to be cancelled in May.
The firm has not referred the matter to the Upper Tribunal.
According to a record published by the London Gazette, Quintillion is the subject of a winding up order from insurer Aviva, which is a creditor of the company.
A petition to wind up the company was presented by Aviva Life Services UK Ltd on 20 June. The order was published by the High Court on 10 July and is due to be heard at Leeds District Registry on 14 August.

First-class Second Opinions ✔
Discounted fixed fee advice.
Need a second opinion on your insolvency litigation? Our specialist solicitors & barristers can help by assessing your case prospects and whether a winding-up petition is the right tool. We have dual-qualified lawyers, so if our view is your case has limited merit or high risk we warn you in our first meeting.
Some firms offer free meetings with unqualified or junior lawyers but only after you’ve spent significant funds do you then get advice from a senior partner and/or barrister possibly suggesting that the case shouldn’t be pursued. We believe it is better to give accurate advice from experienced counsel from the outset.
We do things differently from all other law firms in England & Wales. We offer you partner and counsel-led advice in our first meeting, for a heavily discounted fixed fee. That way our best solicitors and barristers can review your litigation case and give you the correct advice at the outset, when it matters the most.
Legal advice is just one aspect of getting a solution. The most important thing is what you do with the legal knowledge about your case, how you present it to the other side and how you negotiate your way to the optimal legal settlement. Our lawyers are masters of strategically securing optimal financial settlement, often via winding-up petitions where carefully considered and advised as appropriate.
