Kaloti said: “The DFSA letter posted on the regulator’s website confirms that neither I nor the Kaloti Group of Companies are or were part of the DFSA’s investigation of Deutsche Bank AG. The manner in which my name was cited in the claim was extremely damaging to my reputation and my lawyers are investigating why this was the case. I was given no prior warning that I would be named and had at no time been contacted by either party regarding my account.
"Nonetheless, I want to make it clear that I have authorised my office to submit all documents in my possession should they be requested by the DFSA,” he said.
