Edward Eugene Williams Barred from the Securities Industry by FINRA for Misappropriating Funds

Edward Eugene Williams, a former broker with Des Moines, Iowa based Princor Financial Services Corporation, has been sanctioned by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) based on findings that Mr. Williams misappropriated a total of $2,548.83 from his adult sons' IRAs by utilizing a mutual fund's website to electronically request early distribution checks made out to the sons. When Mr. Williams received the checks, he forged his sons' signatures and endorsed most of them for deposit in his own bank account without his sons' knowledge or consent. Mr. Williams, of Loganville, Georgia, was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.

Broker-dealers must establish and implement a reasonable supervisory system to protect customers from broker misconduct. If broker-dealers do not establish and implement a reasonable supervisory system, they may be liable to investors for damages flowing from the misconduct. Therefore, investors who have suffered damages due to the above described prohibited activity or other forms of similar misconduct can bring forth claims to recover losses against Princor Financial Services, which should have prevented Mr. Williams from committing the described illegal acts.
