The DFSA will determine a financial penalty figure that reflects the seriousness of the contravention. In determining such a figure, the DFSA will take into account various factors, which will usually fall into the following four categories:
(a) factors relating to the impact of the contravention;
(b) factors relating to the nature of the contravention;
(c) factors tending to show whether the contravention was deliberate; and
(d) factors tending to show whether the contravention was reckless.
