According to FINRA, Marc Steven Broder was recently barred from FINRA and from associating with any FINRA member firm. The sanction was based on findings that Broder failed to respond to FINRA requestes for documents and information and failed to appear for invstigative testimony regarding its investigation into Broder and Kovack Securities.
Based on Broder’s FINRA Broker Report, it does not appear that he has been named in any other regulatory investigations or customer complaints at this point. However, his former firm, Kovack Securities has been named in several regulatory events and arbitration/customer complaints. Specifically, Kovack Securities has been name in at least 2 regulatory events and 4 arbitration/customer complaints. These arbitrations included claims for, among other things, unsuitability, improper use of margin, and misrepresentation of corporate bonds.
