Texas Attorney Who Sues For Failure to Supervise Stockbroker
Texas 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 Texas securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and the stock brokerage firm’s policies and procedures.
For example, Kestra Investment Services, Inc., headquartered in Austin, Texas, submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for failing to adequately supervise the sales of variable annuities, specifically L-share variable annuities. FINRA found that from October 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014, Kestra Investment Services failed to establish, maintain, and enforce an adequate supervisory system to identify red flags related to the sale of L-share variable annuities. Further, FINRA found that Kestra Investment Services failed to provide its registered representatives with proper training and guidance on suitability considerations for these variable annuities. FINRA found that during the relevant time period, Kestra Investment Services sold 1,873 variable annuity contracts, of which 19%, totaling $52 million, were L-share variable annuity contracts. Without admitting or denying the FINRA findings, Kestra Investment Services was ordered to pay a $475,000 fine.Experienced Lawyers Who Handle Failure to Supervise Stockbroker Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Texas and Nationwide
