Did John Michael Elias Saad Cause You Investment Losses?

A U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decision became final in which John Michael Elias Saad was barred from association with any FINRA member in all capacities. The sanction was based on findings that he allegedly violated FINRA Rule 2010.

John Michael Elias Saad of Atlanta, Georgia formerly worked as a regional director for Penn Mutual Life Insurance and was a registered representative associated with Homer, Townsend & Ken. In 2006, the firm filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing that he had been terminated due to alleged misconduct. According to the findings, Saad allegedly misappropriated his firms funds with a prolonged pattern of falsehood and deception. The NAC findings state that Saad allegedly lied to FINRA investigators when questioned about submitting false expense requests and then forging the documents to support those requests. Although John Michael Elias Saad is no longer registered with any FINRA member, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.

“FINRA is a private self-regulatory organization that oversees the securities industry, including broker-dealers.” “As part of its industry oversight, FINRA sets professional rules of conduct for its members.” FINRA Rule 2010 requires a “member, in the conduct of its business, [to] observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” FINRA’s “Sanction Guidelines” provide that “conversion and the improper use of funds or securities” violate Rule 2010. FINRA’s Guidelines set forth eight specific factors for determining the appropriate sanction for a violation of its rules and instruct adjudicators to consider any other mitigating or aggravating factors.
