The Board of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC ) fines CIF Capital Com SV Investments Ltd. In a statement released on CySEC's website, CIF Capital Com SV Investments Ltd. was fined 10,000 euros.

Capital.com told Finance Magnates that it did indeed report the issue but missed the deadline, which resulted in the decision by the regulator to impose the fine. This is the only fine Capital.com has ever received, and the company has stated that improvements to their processes of reporting market abuse have already been made, as the finding is from over a year ago.

"The Board of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘CySEC’) wishes to inform the public that, at its meeting held on the 14th March 2022, decided to impose an administrative fine of €10.000 to CIF Capital Com SV Investments Ltd (the ‘Company’) for non-compliance with article 16(2) of Regulation (EU) 596/2014 on market abuse, after informing CySEC with undue delay, through two suspicious transactions and orders reports, for its reasonable suspicions that certain transactions could constitute insider dealing."
