FSRA issues Notice of Proposal and Interim Suspension Order against First Swiss Mortgage Corp. and Reza Nezami-Nia

The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) has initiated enforcement action against First Swiss Mortgage Corp. (First Swiss) and Reza Nezami-Nia (Nezami-Nia).

FSRA alleges that First Swiss and Nezami-Nia are no longer suitable to be licensed under the Mortgage Brokerages, Lenders and Administrators Act, 2006 (Act). This is due to the bankruptcy and financial position of First Swiss, contraventions of requirements under the Act, and provision of false or deceptive information to FSRA and lenders.

FSRA is proposing to revoke First Swiss’ mortgage brokerage licence, First Swiss’ mortgage administrator licence and Nezami-Nia’s mortgage broker licence. FSRA has issued an interim order suspending their licences effective March 22, 2023.

First Swiss and Nezami-Nia may request a hearing before the Financial Services Tribunal about this proposal.
