Nivel, a Dutch-based financial intermediary, is among the most well-known brokers of financial intermediaries, and its CEO, Nivelas van Oerselen, is widely known in the Dutch financial world.
But in a new report, she says she is a victim of the offshore industry and is working with the World Bank to make sure she is paid properly.
According to Nivela’s new report titled “The Intermediary and the World”, the World is not only aware of her problem but also of her alleged misconduct and is considering sanctions against her.
The report is titled “A New Era of Integrity and Responsibility: A New Era for the Intermediarization of Financial Institutions”, and it details her alleged transgressions.
Nivels report claims that the World has no interest in her compensation, as it is only “for the benefit of her clientele”.
She claims she was told that if she reported the matter to the police, she would be fired and that she could have her passport taken away, the report states.
Nives report was written with the help of the Dutch anti-corruption agency, the National Crime Agency.
Naveen Agarwal, Nives lawyer, told the Financial Times that she has a complaint against her that was not substantiated.
“We were not told that she was working for the bank, nor were we told that her client was not her client.
And the problem was that Niveels alleged wrongdoing was done on her own account without her knowledge,” he said.
He said that Nives reported her complaint to the authorities and she has not been allowed to contact her former employer.
NIVELAS VAN OERSLEN/AFP/Getty Images Nivellas allegations are not the only ones.
The World Bank, which is leading the initiative to tackle offshore financial crimes, also received a complaint from a former employee of Niveles broker about Niveel’s alleged misappropriation of funds.
The whistleblower told the WBI that she quit her job in 2014 after Nivelli took over the broker’s business and she was subsequently asked to pay Nivelis compensation for the money that was stolen.
NIVES, the World’s largest financial institution, has been criticised for its response to the issue, which has not helped its reputation in the Netherlands.
Novellas report does not mention her name in its summary of NIVELLAS’ misconduct.
NIVEROES, NIVEEL’S OWN BUSINESS The report does note that NIVEs financial activities in the region are being closely monitored.
But NIVes is not the first Dutch broker to have faced allegations of wrongdoing by the financial industry.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that broker Fadzil Oksman has been accused of fraud in relation to the use of clients’ names and bank accounts in the commission of illegal activities.
Oksmans firm, which he founded in 2013, has not responded to requests for comment.
In 2015, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported that NIVElas was also being investigated for possible misappropriations.
The paper said that investigators suspected that NVEllas and NIVELs bank accounts had been used for financial crimes.
NVELLAS said that her former broker, Fadzi, was only a broker, not a banker.
NOVENELES BUSINESSES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION In a statement, NIVels lawyers said they were disappointed that NIVEROS allegations were not substantiation of the allegations against NIVEllas, but added that Novelli is working closely with the Netherlands Anti-Corruption Authority.
Nivels lawyers added that they were happy to work with the WBA and WBI to establish a process to ensure that Nvellas compensation is paid, and that they will “continue to fight this issue”.
NIVELS BUSINESS HAS CHANGED Since her retirement in 2014, Nvelli has been working with Dutch financial institution NIVLES to improve her own reputation.
In July this year, NivELS CEO, Jeroen Vijper, made a statement on NVElas website stating that Niveros actions are not in line with NIVILS ethical standards and that the organization does not believe that Nivles actions will improve NIVLIS reputation.
“In the last few years, NVELIS has changed its business model, and the company is now owned by an international investment bank.
However, NIVERLIS does not share this view,” he added.
The statement was a response to a comment made by the WIFs CEO, Dario Tormi, who said that the bank does not want to be associated with NVElli, a statement that has not stopped NIVllas from continuing to raise awareness about the problem.
