Landbanking 21st Century's Jamie McIntyre and brother accept 10 year bans from ASIC

Jamie McIntyre and his brother Dennis McIntyre have accepted 10-year bans from ASIC on managing corporation or operating a financial services business.

This follows an agreement between ASIC and the brothers that the five Victorian land banking schemes, promoted through Jamie McIntyre’s 21stCentury Group, were unregistered.

It also noted that they operated a financial business without a license at the time that they promoted it to their investors. Liquidators were unable to locate more than $7 million outlaid on controversial options on five landbanking schemes proposed for the outskirts of Melbourne, Bendigo and Townsville.

The McIntyre brothers also agreed to pay the $50,000 legal costs for ASIC.

Fairfax Media reported the $7 million was lost from more than 100 investors.

Justice Bromwich said that there were little prospect of reimbursement to the investors.

"[The defendants] have effectively capitulated in the face of what seemed the inevitable prospect of success [for ASIC] and reached agreement that the relief agreements were necessary and appropriate," said Federal Court Justice Bromwich in his judgement on Monday.

"Five illegal investment schemes were operated by the eight companies associated with Jamie and Dennis McIntyre," Justice Bromwich said.

Deloitte were appointed as joint liquidators to the corporate respondents to ASIC’s proceeding that commenced in August last year.

There is an unrelated property group by the same name.
