Did Luke Charles Nelson Cause You Investment Losses?

Luke Charles Nelson of Fosston, Minnesota 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 he allegedly forged a customer’s signature, violating FINRA Rule 2010. Without admitting or denying the allegations, he consented to the sanctions. The suspension was in effect from August 17, 2020, through October 16, 2020.

In August of 2013, Luke Charles Nelson joined Thrivent Investment Management Inc. and was registered as a General Securities Representative. According to FINRA, they began an investigation after receiving a Form U5 reporting Nelson’s termination, stating that he had allegedly forged a clients signature on multiple documents. The findings stated that the client completed and signed documents in order to open two accounts and Nelson assisted by submitting them to Thrivent. After receiving the documents, Thrivent informed Nelson that they required non-substantive corrections. Due to the complications, FINRA stated that Nelson had allegedly tried to accommodate the client by signing and resubmitting the forms without his authorization. In addition, FINRA further alleged that Nelson signed an additional two commission-based brokerage account applications again without the clients approval.

FINRA Rule 2010 requires registered representatives, in the conduct of their business, to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” Forgery and/or falsification of documents is unethical conduct that violates FINRA Rule 2010.
