Episode 51: ASIC's case against former financial adviser James Gibbs

10 July 2019

On 10 July 2019, ASIC’s case against James Gibbs came to a close and he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, with a non-parole period of seven years to serve.

James Gibbs stole $4.88 million from his clients when he was acting as their financial adviser. His clients trusted him with their savings, with their money to be used for their retirements, and he devastatingly broke that trust by using that money for his own purposes. 

In this episode, we hear from Dallas, one of Mr Gibbs' victims who helped build ASIC's case, as well as ASIC investigator, Chris Rowe.
