Did Cynthia Kay Parrott Cooney Cause You Investment Losses?
You may have read that Cynthia Kay Parrott Cooney of Saint Louis, Missouri was permanently barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) from working in the securities industry because she failed to comply with FINRA Rule 8210.
In May 1990, Cynthia Kay Parrott Cooney joined Wells Fargo Advisors as an unregistered Client Associate. According to the findings, FINRA sent a request to Cooney to appear for an on-the-record testimony during an ongoing investigation. The findings stated that Cooney responded to FINRA in an email stating that she allegedly received, acknowledged, and refused to cooperate with the investigation. Although Cooney is no longer associated with a FINRA member, she remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states, in relevant part, that FINRA may require any “person associated with a member, or any other person subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction to testify at a location specified by FINRA staff with respect to any matter involved in the investigation.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons, in the conduct of their business, to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”
