| Top Ten Lists from around the world



List: Top Ten Fines Levied by the UK Financial Services Authority

Date: As at end 2004

Source: Financial Services Authority (FSA)

Base: All companies fined by the FSA for improper conduct

Notes: Royal Dutch Shell lead the list by quite some distance, whilst the other nine entries are financial services companies. Shell were fined "for committing market abuse and breaching the listing rules... in relation to misstatements of its proved reserves." This came on top of a US$120 million settlement that Shell agreed to pay the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. Ouch.
