ASIC banned Mr Arnold after he was convicted and sentenced in August 2015, in separate proceedings in the District Court of Western Australia, of nine counts of stealing as a servant and one count of gaining a benefit by fraud.

ASIC may ban anyone who is convicted of fraud under the Corporations Act 2001 and National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009,.

Mr Arnold has the right to lodge an application for review of ASIC's decision with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
