Did Jeffrey Kerr Cause You Investment Losses?

Jeffrey Kerr of New Milford, Pennsylvania submitted an AWC to FINRA for allegedly participating in private securities transactions without his member firms approval. In 2001, Kerr became a GSR at LaSalle St. Securities, LLC (LSS) and has remained there since. Without admitting or denying the FINRA finding for the sole purpose of the proceeding, Kerr agreed to the sanctions for which he allegedly participated in private securities transactions without providing prior notice to LSS. According to FINRA in January 2012, Kerr attended several luncheons with customers and representatives of an issuer for the purpose of finding investors interested in a private offering. Kerr provided written notice of the private offering to LSS and requested permission to participate in the offering. Before LSS had approved Kerr’s request, Kerr notified LSS that a customer whom he had already referred to the issuer and was also an LSS customer, wanted to invest $25,000 in the private offering. FINRA alleged that Kerr assisted the client in executing the $25,000 investment by coordinating the transfer of funds from the clients account to the issuer. Kerr did not have permission from his firm to participate in the offering and therefore willfully violated NASD Rule 3040 and FINRA Rule 2010. For his alleged conduct, Kerr was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and suspended from association with any FINRA registered firm in any capacity for ten business days.
