Charles James Euler Jr. of Villanova, Pennsylvania submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in which he was barred for allegedly refusing to appear for on-the-record testimony in violation of FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.
In December of 1984, Charles James Euler Jr. joined Janney Montgomery Scott LLC as a General Securities Representative, General Securities Principal, and a Financial and Operations Principal. According to FINRA findings, a form U5 was filed reporting Charles James Euler Jr. voluntarily resigned from the firm in April of 2018. The FINRA findings stated that a request was sent to Euler on March 12, 2020 for an on-the-record testimony regarding an investigation reporting Euler allegedly made unsuitable recommendations. In addition to these findings, an email was sent to FINRA staff the following day which allegedly stated that Euler refused to appear for the on-the-record testimony at any time. Although Charles James Euler Jr. is no longer registered with any FINRA member firm, he remains under FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states that FINRA may require persons subject to its jurisdiction “to testify at a location specification by FINRA staff, under oath with respect to any matter involved in [an] investigation” authorized by the FINRA By-Laws or rules. FINRA Rules 8210(c) states that “[n]o person shall fail to provide testimony pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
Without admitting or denying FINRA’s findings, Charles James Euler Jr. was barred from association with any FINRA member in all capacities.
Stockbrokers have been known to engage in many practices that may violate industry and firm rules, practices, and procedures. In order to protect investors from stockbroker misconduct, FINRA rules require brokerage firms to establish and implement a supervisory system. The implementation of these industry rules requires supervisors to monitor their employees to ensure compliance with federal and state securities laws, securities industry rules and regulations, and the brokerage firm’s own policies and procedures. If broker-dealers and/or their supervisors fail to establish and implement these protective measures, they may be liable to investors for damages which flow from the broker’s misconduct. Therefore, investors who have suffered losses stemming from misconduct by their broker can file claims to recover damages against broker-dealers, like Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, which should consistently oversee its brokers’ activities in order to prevent the above-described misconduct.
