Viewing and sharing of financial records of deceased family member


A bank employee, acting on behalf of his nephew, viewed the financial records of his deceased uncle and shared the data with the nephew.

The bank filed a complaint with the foundation, arguing that the defendant violated the rules and regulations of the bank. Customers – or their next of kin – should be able to count on the confidentiality of financial records. The Disciplinary Committee handed the defendant a professional ban of one month. The defendant’s name was added to the foundation’s registry, which is accessible by all banks.
