Investment firm Rekyer Securities Plc has ceased regulated activities after, meaning that it will no-longer trade with investments now that is has entered into Special Administration.
Normally, when a firm enters into Insolvency Proceedings such as an administration, it appoints its own Administrators – professional insolvency practitioners to take over the business and try to either save it, or wind the company up and pay as many creditors as possible.
In the case of Reyker Securities, the firm has gone into Special Administration, where the regulators at the FCA have appointed their own administrators.
The firm is now listed as ‘Authorised – In Special Administration’ on the FCA’s register, after ceasing regulated activities including investments.

Reyker Securities is a DFM, which means that it builds portfolios of investments and then manages clients’ money by investing in them.
DFMs often group investments together based on risk or the type of industry they are in, meaning that some portfolios of investments may feature high-risk investments and therefore not be suitable for some people. Many people use DFMs to make SIPP pension investments.
We know that the owners of Reyker Securities were looking to sell the DFM, but have now entered into Administration following “financial difficulties” and the collapse of the sale.
We also know that “following an application by Reyker because of financial difficulties, the Financial Conduct Authority has imposed regulatory requirements meaning that: Reyker has ceased to conduct regulated acitivities except for holding and safeguarding client money nad investment assets.”

In 2013, Merchant Capital fell into administration. Reyker Securties was involved as the former custodian.
Following financial difficulties and the breakdown of the sale of the business, Reyker Securities enters into Special Administration and ceases all regulated activities.
While the reason for Reyker’s own financial difficulties is not yet known, many DFMs have collapsed over the past few years due to high-risk and unregulated investments.
The FCA warned about what it called Third Generation Pension Scams a couple of years back – where high-risk and ultimately toxic investments were hidden within DFM portfolios to acquire money from unsuspecting investors.
We now know that DFM firms such as Beaufort Securities and Greyfriars Asset Management certainly had exposure to such investments, and the fault may lie with Financial Advisers who failed in their due diligence duties.
