Texas FINRA Securities Arbitration Attorney
Texas has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisor offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Texas securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Carl Busch, a Registered Principal with the Dallas, Texas based WFG Investments, Inc. (WFG) submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) in which he was fined and suspended by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for failing to adequately manage a registered representative under his supervision in IRA recommendations and transactions which were unsuitable.
FINRA’s findings state that Carl Wayne Busch of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, failed to properly supervise or investigate numerous red flags involving a registered representative of his member firm who recommended and engaged in unsuitable trades in the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) of a retiree with known health problems, limited income, and a “moderate” risk tolerance.
According to FINRA, the employee under Mr. Busch’s supervision had recommended and purchased three unsuitable securities for a retiree with a degenerative eye disease and limited income. The recommendations were unsuitable and included an investment of $100,831 in a speculative Oklahoma based oil and gas company resulting in an almost complete loss when the company declared bankruptcy.
FINRA investigators found, Mr. Busch failed to adequately examine numerous red flags indicating that the employee was engaging in practices that were to the detriment of his customers. As a result, Carl Busch was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in any principal capacity for 45 days. The suspension was effective from January 19, 2016 through March 3, 2016.Experienced Lawyers Who Handle Securities Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Texas and Nationwide
