FORMER Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL) CEO Mark Croskery says since he resigned from the firm five years ago he has had no contact with its directors, management, or the team which manages client accounts.
Croskery made the declaration in a statement on Monday as the company continues to struggle with the implications of a multi-billion-dollar fraud that is now being investigated by law enforcement agencies.
"I am not aware of any fraudulent activity at the entity during my tenure there. Consequently, the issues raised in the public domain concerning SSL have nothing to do with me," Croskery said.
"Contrary to reports in the media, I am not aware of any effort by any investigator to reach me. However, should any investigator wish to interact with me, I intend to fully cooperate," he added.
"I am aware of false and defamatory allegations made on social and traditional media platforms concerning me and have moved to have the relevant consultations with a view of taking legal action to protect my reputation," he said.
"I wish all affected by the issues at SSL well and hope that those who've reportedly suffered losses are made whole in the shortest possible time."
