Rahimah, a UTS consultant of RHB Asset Management Sdn Bhd (“RHBAM”) at the material time, was found to be in breach of Clause 3.1.3 (a) of FIMM’s Code for acting as proxy for a former UTS consultant of Principal Asset Management Berhad, Che Mohd Azfarizan Bin Seman, in submitting the investment form of an investor to RHBAM.
