Did Louise Jones Cause You Investment Losses?
Louise Jones of Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which she was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for a period of two months. The sanctions were based on findings that she allegedly engaged in outside business activities in violation of FINRA Rules 3270 and 2010. The suspension was in effect from March 15, 2021, through May 14, 2021.
From January 2017 through January 2020, Louise Jones was registered with three different FINRA member firms. According to FINRA, one of the associated firms, Craft Capital, filed a Uniform Termination for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) terminating Jones’s registration due to alleged misconduct. The findings state that while associated with all three firms, Jones also worked for a publicly traded company and served as the Chief Executive Officer and a board member without providing notice to any of the firms. The findings further state that Jones did not disclose her involvement with the company in her new employee paperwork or in an annual compliance questionnaire submitted to Craft Capital and received approximately $41,000 in compensation from the company. Although Louise Jones no longer registered or associated with a FINRA member firm she remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
NASD Rule 2510(b) prohibits registered representatives from “exercising any discretionary power in a customer’s account” unless the customer has provided prior written authorization to the representative and the account has been accepted as a discretionary account, in writing, by the representative’s member firm. A violation of NASD Rule 2510(b) is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”.
