Did Scott David Fergang Cause You Investment Losses?
Scott David Fergang of Ramsey, New Jersey submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which he was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for a period of 15 days. The sanctions were based on findings that he allegedly exercised discretionary trading without authorization in violation of NASD Rule 2510(b) and FINRA Rule 2010. The suspension was in effect from May 17, 2021, through June 7, 2021.
In July 2015, Scott David Fergang joined RBC Capital Markets, LLC and became registered as a General Securities Sales Supervisor. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination for Securities Industry Registration, disclosing that Fergang was terminated due to alleged misconduct. According to FINRA’s findings, from February 15 through March 2019, Fergang allegedly exercised discretionary trading in four customers’ accounts effecting approximately 814 transactions. The findings state that prior to placing the trades, Fergang allegedly failed to obtain written authorization from the customers to exercise discretion in their accounts and RBC did not accept any as discretionary accounts. Scott David Fergang is currently registered with a FINRA member firm and remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
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, to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”.
