David Austin, along with Susan Dalton, Alan Barratt and Julian Hanson, ran a scam that cost 245 people their pension savings, after the members were persuaded using cold-calling and other techniques to transfer their pensions into one of 11 scam schemes.
The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has now prohibited Mr Austin from acting as a pension scheme trustee to protect pension holders.
The Insolvency Service has disqualified him from being a company director for 12 years.
Ms Dalton, Mr Barratt and Mr Hanson have also been banned from being trustees of pension schemes.
After TPR brought proceedings against the quartet in the High Court, in January the individuals were ordered to repay the millions of pounds they took from the schemes.
At the conclusion of the case, Judge Mark Pelling QC said that Mr Austin had been the “mastermind” behind the scam.
Victims of the con were told that if they transferred their pension pots to the schemes they would receive a tax-free payment commonly described as a ‘commission rebate’ from investments made by the pension scheme – a form of pension scam.
The High Court ruled that Mr Austin moved funds from the schemes to his bank account and the accounts of family members in the UK, Switzerland and Andorra through a number of businesses that he had set up in the UK, Cyprus and the Caribbean.
Mr Austin and his family had derived at least £1.3m of benefit from the scam.
Mr Barratt had been paid more than £380,000, Ms Dalton more than £168,000 and Mr Hanson £7,000.
Part of the ruse involved £120,000 of scheme funds being moved to a company whose directors included Mr Austin and his daughter, Camilla Austin.
Mr Austin had not been appointed as a trustee of any of the schemes, but TPR’s Determinations Panel has ruled that TPR should take action as he had been “dishonestly involved in the misuse or misappropriation of scheme assets.”
Banning him from being a trustee, it said: “The panel concluded that the evidence in relation to Mr Austin's conduct was so serious, and his involvement in the Receiving Schemes was so close and influential, as to warrant his prohibition from acting as a trustee of trust schemes in general.”
The panel ruled that Ms Dalton, Mr Barratt and Mr Hanson should be banned from being trustees both for their dishonesty but also because of the amounts of money they took from the schemes.
Separately, the Insolvency Service has banned Mr Austin from being a company director for 12 years and Camilla Austin for four years for their role in the misuse of pension scheme funds.
