LONDON, May 16 (Reuters) - Britain's financial regulator said that it was banning BGC senior e
xecutive Anthony Verrier from working in the financial services industry after it raised concerns over his conduct in a legal spat with rival brokerage Tullett Prebon.
The Financial Services Authority said on Wednesday: 'In light of the High Court's findings about Verrier's conduct, we have concluded that he is not fit and proper to be in the UK financial services industry.'
A London High Court judge found BGC guilty in 2010 of unlawfully inducing 10 Tullett brokers to breach their employment contracts.
The FSA said Verrier had referred the matter to appeal.
