Did Sonia Maria Fernandez Cause You Investment Losses?

Sonia Maria Fernandez of Miami, Florida submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which she was fined $2,500 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for a period of 20 days. The sanctions were based on findings that she engaged in unauthorized transactions in violation of FINRA Rule 2010. The suspension was in effect from November 2, 2020, through November 21, 2020.

In February 2012, Sonia Maria Fernandez joined UBS Financial Services Inc. and became registered as a General Securities Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5) disclosing that Fernandez resigned while under review due to alleged misconduct. According to the FINRA findings, Fernandez allegedly engaged in five transactions totaling $70,500 without approval from her firm. The findings state that Fernandez allegedly accepted checks made payable to another entity to avoid detection by her firm as the payee. In addition, Fernandez knew of the firms policy from entering into financial relationships or transactions with customers absent preapproval by the firm and had previously received a warning for the same misconduct.

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.
