Cambridge Investment Representative Barred Amid Allegations of Converting Client Funds

Glenn Allen Moffitt, a former registered representative with the Henderson Nevada branch of Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. (Cambridge) submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which he consented to, but did not admit to or deny, the entry of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) sanctions and findings that he failed to appear for on-the-record testimony which was requested amid allegations that he converted approximately $370,000 from an elderly customer.

FINRA Rule 8210 requires registered representatives to appear as requested for on-the-record testimony at any time. According to FINRA, Mr. Moffitt acknowledged that he received FINRA’s request for his testimony in conjunction with the conversion allegations investigation, but Mr. Moffitt refused to appear. Consequently, Glenn Moffitt, of Henderson Nevada, was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.

Stockbrokers have been known to engage in many types of practices which violate industry and firm rules, practices, and procedures. In order to protect customers from stockbroker misconduct, FINRA rules require broker-dealers like Cambridge Investment Research to not only establish and implement a reasonable supervisory system but enforce the rules, policies and procedures. The implementation of the rules require supervisors to monitor employees to ensure they comply with federal and state securities laws, securities industry rules and regulations, and the firm’s own policies and procedures. If broker dealers and/or their supervisors do not establish, implement and enforce these protective measures, they may be liable to investors for damages which flow from the misconduct. As a result, investors who have suffered losses because of their stockbroker’s unlawful or prohibited conduct, including the conversion of funds, can file a claim to recover damages against broker dealers like Cambridge Investment Research, which should consistently oversee its employees in order to prevent stockbroker misconduct.
