Virginia Attorney Who Sues for Failure to Supervise Stockbroker
Virginia has hundreds 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 Virginia securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and the stock brokerage firm’s policies and procedures.
For example, Capitol Securities Management, Inc. (CSM) of Glen Allen, Virginia submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for several claims of supervisory failures and unsuitable purchases of Reverse Convertible Notes (RCN’s). CSM has been a FINRA member since 1985 and has over 60 branch offices with its main headquarters in Glen Allen, Virginia.
According to FINRA, between January 2008 and August 2011, a registered representative for CSM recommended and executed 24 unsuitable purchases of customizable RCN’s totaling approximately $4 million. FINRA claimed that the eight clients affected were unsuitable candidates for these RCN purchases because of their risk tolerance, age, and financial experience.
In addition, FINRA found that CSM failed to implement a proper Anti-money Laundering (AML) and Customer Identification Program (CIP). FINRA also found red flags in seven of their clients’ accounts and that CSM did not verify the identification for seven accounts. In over 400 transactions, FINRA also found, that the CSM representative was collecting excessive commissions totaling approximately $32,784.13. CSM agreed to the FINRA sanctions, without admitting or denying the FINRA findings, and was ordered to pay a $470,000 fine. Additionally, CSM was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $226,448.90 for the clients affected by their representative.Experienced Lawyers Who Handle Failure to Supervise Stockbroker Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Virginia and Nationwide
