Illinois Securities Lawyer For Mutual Fund Investment Disputes
Illinois has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in Mutual Funds and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Illinois securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules as well as the stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, State Farm VP Management Corp., a Bloomington, Illinois based brokerage firm, submitted a AWC to FINRA for failing to establish, maintain, and enforce a supervisory system or written supervisory procedures (WSPs) reasonably designed to ensure timely delivery of mutual fund prospectuses, when it was required to provide all customers who purchased a mutual fund a prospectus for that fund no later than three business days after the transaction. FINRA’s findings stated that the firm executed numerous mutual fund purchase transactions that required it to deliver a mutual fund prospectus to the purchasing customer, and as such, establish and maintain a supervisory system and WSPs reasonably designed to oversee and ensure the timely delivery of mutual fund prospectuses. FINRA also stated that the firm failed to establish, maintain, and enforce an adequate supervisory system or written procedures to supervise mutual fund prospectus delivery, when it had inadequate systems and procedures in place to monitor and ensure compliance with its WSPs directive concerning delivery of a current mutual fund prospectus by its brokers to each client prior to or at the time of the sales presentation in which the broker recommended or discussed a specific mutual fund. The firm was censured and fined a total $155,000 for all violations.Experienced Securities Attorneys Handling Claims For Mutual Fund Investors In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Illinois and Nationwide
