Did Michael Finn Coomes Jr. Cause You Investment Losses?
Michael Finn Coomes Jr. of Phoenix, New York was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member for a period of 15 business days for allegedly exercising discretion without authorization. Without admitting or denying the allegations, Michael Finn Coomes Jr. consented to the sanctions. The suspension was in effect from September 21, 2020, through October 9, 2020.
In March 2003, Michael Finn Coomes joined Cadaret Grant and was registered as a General Securities Representative, a General Securities Principal, and an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative. According to the FINRA findings, Coomes effected trades in 24 customers accounts without their written authorization or approval from his member firm. The findings stated that the trades were based on the customers verbal approval to exercise discretionary trading in their accounts more than three days prior to the transactions. Without the written authorization or approval from Cadaret, Mr. Coomes violated NASD Rule 2510(b) and FINRA Rule 2010.
NASD Rule 2510(b) prohibits registered representatives from “exercising any discretionary power in a customer’s account” unless the customer has provided prior written authorization to the representative and the account has been accepted as a discretionary account, in writing, by the representative’s member firm. A violation of NASD Rule 2510(b) is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
