[인포스탁데일리=김현욱AI 앵커] Director Lee Bok-hyun of the Financial Supervisory Service had a meeting with the CEOs of financial investment areas such as securities companies and asset management companies.
However, what is peculiar is that large domestic securities firms, such as NH Investment & Securities, Shinhan Financial, and Daishin Securities, are known to have not been invited to the meeting, drawing attention to the background.
Bok-hyeon Lee, head of the Financial Supervisory Service, held a meeting with CEOs of the financial investment sector at the Financial Investment Center in Yeouido, Seoul on the 28th.
In addition to Lee Bok-hyeon, head of the Financial Supervisory Service, Na Jae-cheol, president of the Financial Investment Association, and CEOs of 9 securities companies and 7 management companies attended the meeting.
However, the name of NH Investment & Securities CEO Jung Young-chae did not appear on the list of attendees.
The industry is skeptical about the omission of the name of the head of NH Investment & Securities, one of the largest securities firms in Korea.
Shinhan Financial Investment and Daishin Securities were also not invited here.
It has not been confirmed whether it is because of the personal schedule of the representatives of securities companies who are not currently attending or whether the FSS did not invite them.
However, it is an analysis that these securities companies are related to and related to fraudulent funds such as Lime and Optimus.
At the meeting, FSS Chairman Lee Bok-hyeon emphasized that the private equity market monitoring system related to the Lime and Optimus incidents and related private equity fund market surveillance will be firmly systematized to prevent a second private equity crisis from occurring.
Previously, Bok-hyeon Lee, the head of the Financial Supervisory Service, expressed the opinion that a re-investigation is necessary in relation to the Lime and Optimus fraud funds that occurred during the Moon Jae-in administration.
Although the case is closed, he said that there is room to look into the system as the issue continues to be raised in some corners of society.
In 2020, the Financial Supervisory Service issued a suspension of duties for Kim Hyung-jin, former president of Shinhan Financial Investment, a securities company that sold lime funds, Yoon Kyung-eun, former KB Securities CEO, Na Jae-cheol, former president of Daishin Securities, and KB Securities CEO Park Jung-rim.
Jung Young-chae, president of NH Investment & Securities, the largest seller of the Optimus Fund, was also given a reprimand warning in March last year.
However, the final disciplinary action plan for these CEOs has not been finalized.
