Former Finance Minister, Dr. Peter Phillips, says he was made aware of the Financial Services Commission, FSC’s, concerns about embattled investment firm SSL.

Phillips was the portfolio Minister in 2013.

Speaking with Nationwide News yesterday, Dr. Phillips says red flags about the entity were brought to his attention.

The former Finance Minister says actions were taken to correct the concerns found at SSL, and they were no longer constrained by FSC’s directions.

The former PNP President and Opposition Leader says there are further questions which requires answers considering the continued problems highlighted at the investment firm in 2017 and beyond.
