Did Clay Erickson Cause You Investment Losses?

Clay Gavin Erickson of Ogden, Utah submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in which he received a fine and suspension for allegedly engaging in unauthorized transactions in violation of FINRA Rule 2010. While employed with Hornor, Townsend & Kent as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative, Clay Erickson effected 494 unauthorized transactions, totaling $5,317,233.32 in his customers’ variable annuity accounts.  FINRA found that Mr. Erickson, in anticipation of an imminent market downturn, transferred funds held by 57 customers to a money market sub-account in an effort to protect the customers’ account value.  FINRA’s findings stated that Erickson did not obtain authorization from the customers in violation of FINRA Rule 2010.  Additionally, Clay Erickson was terminated shortly after one of his customers made a complaint to the firm concerning the transactions. Clay Gavin Erickson, without admitting or denying FINRA’s findings, consented to the sanctions and was suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for nine months.
