Liquidators appointed to Courtenay House

Liquidators appointed to Courtenay House

The Supreme Court of NSW has made orders, by consent, for the winding up of Sydney-based trading firm Courtenay House following an application by ASIC.


Liquidators will be appointed to Sydney-based Courtenay House Capital Trading Group following a successful action by ASIC in the Supreme Court of NSW to have the company wound up.

The Supreme Court order follows separate ASIC-initiated orders by the court on 1 May 2017 to have the assets of the company frozen and a travel ban placed on director Tony Iervasi.

ASIC is conducting an ongoing investigation into the Courtenay House companies, which, according to the regulator, "previously offered returns to investors on capital allegedly invested in foreign exchanges and futures commodities when they were not licensed to do so".

The joint liquidators appointed to the Courtenay House companies are Said Jahani and John McInerney of Grant Thornton.

While ASIC is refusing to comment on the ongoing investigation, the regulator has posted an information page with details of all publicly available information concerning the case on its website.
