Fenech was previously a director of Falcon Funds, a pension fund that was marketed in Sweden and the subject of a criminal investi- gation in Stockholm after millions in savings were lost. After the Swedish pensions authority claimed the fund was unable to pay back €247 million in savings because of 'major invest- ment fraud', the MFSA put Falcon Funds un- der the control of auditors KPMG in 2016. en in October 2017, the MFSA had issued a stern reprimand to Tonio Fenech and direc- tors Ian Zammit and Joseph Xuereb. "From the review of the modus operandi of the directors of the scheme, the MFSA de- termined that the Board failed in its primary responsibilities toward the Scheme and its in- vestors," the regulator said.
