Pennsylvania Attorney Who Sues For Failure to Supervise Stockbroker
Pennsylvania has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms comes the potential for a stock brokerage firm to fail to supervise its stockbrokers, financial advisors and investment advisors from engaging in misconduct which violates Federal and Pennsylvania securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and the stock brokerage firm’s policies and procedures.
For example, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based PNC Investments LLC submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which the firm agreed to, without admitting or denying, the described penalties and to the entry of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) findings that it failed to establish and maintain a supervisory system and written supervisory procedures (WSPs) reasonably designed to achieve compliance with Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933. According to FINRA, the firm’s WSPs for compliance with Section 5 were limited to a section on private placements and offerings, which addressed Regulation D, Rule 144 and private investments in public equity. The procedures restated the requirements, or exemptions, contained in the regulations but did not provide for any supervisory structure to safeguard compliance with Section 5. The firm’s procedures failed to address compliance generally with Section 5, and were inadequate in stating the circumstances under which the firm should inquire into the registration or exemption status of securities in customer accounts. The procedures at the time failed to specifically list the factors of the firm’s requirements to evaluate or consider so as to determine whether it was necessary to make further inquiries, before allowing a customer to sell potentially unregistered securities. PNC Investments was censured and fined $100,000.Experienced Lawyers Who Handle Failure to Supervise Stockbroker Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Pennsylvania and Nationwide
