Miami Broker Barred From Industry

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2015)
According to the South Florida Business Journal, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) permanently barred former Miami broker, Bruce F. Supanik, for allegedly transferring the balance of a client’s account totaling $506,450 into a joint checking account shared with the client. Supanik then purportedly deposited the funds into his personal bank account.

FINRA’s was investigating Supanik’s termination from his member firm, The O.N. Equity Sales Company.  In FINRA’s complaint, Supanik was apparently terminated for making the alleged transaction after the clients death, which he failed to  disclose to his firm.

Brokerage firms have a supervisory responsibility to monitor the activity of their employees. When brokers violate securities rules and regulations at the expense of their clients, the brokerage firm may be liable for negligent supervision and responsible for investment losses.
