Did Candice Montie Cause You Investment Losses?
Candice Montie of Fenton, Michigan 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 three months. The sanctions were based on findings that she participated in private securities transactions in violation of FINRA Rules 3280 and 2010. The suspension was in effect from April 19, 2021, through July 18, 2021.
In November 2013, Candice Montie joined Moloney Securities and became registered as an Investment Company/Variable Contracts Products Representative and a General Securities Representative. According to FINRA’s findings, Montie participated in four private securities transactions involving $150,000 through another firm without providing prior written notice to Moloney Securities. The findings state that Montie assisted the investors with completing the paperwork, gathered the signed documents, answered the investors questions, coordinated all payments, and scanned and transmitted the required paperwork to the other broker-dealer to complete the transactions. Although Candice Montie is no longer registered or associated with a FINRA member, she remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 3280 requires that, prior to participating in a private securities transaction, a person associated with a member firm shall provide written notice to his or her firm “describing in detail the proposed transaction and the person’s proposed role therein[.]” FINRA Rule 3280 defines a private securities transaction as “any securities transaction outside the regular course or scope of an associated person’s employment with a member.” A violation of FINRA Rule 3280 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
