Did Teresa Lynn Holwerda Cause You Investment Losses?

Teresa Lynn Holwerda of Danube, Minnesota submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) 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 forged the signature of a customer in violation of FINRA Rule 2010. The suspension was in effect from January 19, 2021, through March 18, 2021.

In June 1998, Teresa Lynn Holwerda joined State Farm VP Management Corp. and became registered as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing that she had been terminated due to his alleged misconduct. According to FINRA’s findings, Holwerda allegedly failed to follow company guidelines regarding the Life Insurance process by forging a customer’s signature. The findings state that the customer requested that his life insurance policy be cancelled due to his divorce, however, Holwerda understood the request as meaning he just wanted to be removed from the policy, so she forged his signature for a change of ownership and submitted it to the firms affiliated life insurance company. In addition to the findings, the customer then complained to the insurance company once he became aware of the forgery. Although Teresa Lynn Holwerda is not currently registered or associated with any FINRA member firm, she remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.

FINRA Rule 2010 requires associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade” in the conduct of their business. FINRA Rule 2010 encompasses all unethical, business-related conduct, even if that conduct does not involve a security or a securities transaction. Forgery is a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
