Did Corey Alexander Johnson Cause You Investment Losses?
Corey Alexander Johnson of Centereach, New York was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for a period of 30 days. The sanctions were based on findings that he allegedly exercised discretionary trading without authorization in violation of NASD Rule 2510 (b) and FINRA Rule 2010. The suspension was in effect from April 19, 2021, through May 18, 2021.
In June 2011, Corey Alexander Johnson joined Aegis Capital Corp. and became registered as a General Securities Representative. According to FINRA’s findings, from April 2017 through April 2019, Johnson exercised discretionary trading in five customers’ accounts effecting approximately 1,358 transactions. The findings state that prior to placing the trades, Johnson allegedly failed to obtain authorization from the customers to exercise discretion in their accounts and Aegis did not accept any of the accounts as discretionary accounts, therefore violating NASD Rule 2510(b) and FINRA Rule 2010.
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.
