ASIC: Former NAB adviser charged with forging documents

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) announced that Shane Thompson, of New Gisborne, Victoria, has appeared in the Bendigo Magistrates' Court on two charges brought by ASIC that he forged financial planning documents.

ASIC alleges that between 27 December 2012 and 1 March 2013, Mr Thompson completed 22 false client change of adviser forms and submitted them to MLC Ltd to transfer National Australia Bank (NAB) clients to his personal financial planning client list. ASIC alleges that Mr Thompson forged client signatures on each form and undertook this process without clients' knowledge or authorisation so that he could receive additional financial planning remuneration from his employer, the NAB.

At a hearing on 31 July 2017, the matter was adjourned for a plea hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on 26 October 2017.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is prosecuting the matter.
