Did Bryan Carnahan Cause You Investment Losses?

Bryan Carnahan of Gahanna, Ohio submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to FINRA for allegedly misappropriating and converting client funds, for which he later used for his own personal use. Carnahan first became registered in the securities industry as an Investment Company Products/Variable Contracts Representative through a FINRA-registered firm in August 1998. In December 1998, Carnahan became registered though The Huntington Investment Company (Huntington) and remained there until his termination in March 2015. FINRA alleged that Carnahan misappropriated approximately $169,500 from a Huntington customer. Then, FINRA found that Carnahan used those misappropriated funds and deposited approximately $149,000 into accounts of clients of his who had suffered investment losses. Carnahan, on five occasions, allegedly transferred a total of $169,500 from one of his clients brokerage accounts to their Huntington bank account. When the client’s funds were transferred, FINRA alleged that Carnahan then instructed the client to withdraw those funds and obtain cashier’s checks for investment opportunities. Carnahan then fraudulently caused the cashier’s checks to be re-issued to the accounts of at least 13 of Carnahan’s clients who had suffered investment losses. In doing so, FINRA found that Carnahan violated FINRA Rules 2150 and 2010 for not having a high standard of commercial honor and using a client’s money for his own personal use. Without admitting or denying the FINRA findings, Carnahan agreed to the sanctions and was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.
