Viewing and sharing of financial records of deceased family member

27 November 2019
Verdicts Disciplinary Committee
Professional ban


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.
