SEC Bars Former Wells Fargo advisor Ane Plate

On Monday the SEC permanently barred former Wells Fargo Advisors broker Ane Plate from the securities industry.

Ane Plate allegedly stole $176,000 that she had raised through the unauthorized sale of securities from elderly clients’ investment accounts, according to the SEC’s settlement order.

According to her FINRA BrokerCheck, Ane Plate was registered with Wells Fargo Financial Network, in Deltona, FL, from 2005 through June 2014.

Plate, 60, was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison earlier this month. According to court documents, she allegedly used the money from the 15 unauthorized trades to pay her mortgage and upgrade her home. Plate admitted to the Commission’s findings as part of the settlement, the SEC said.

Brokerage firms are required to adequately supervise their agents. They must ensure they are complying with FINRA rules. The firms can be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim if it is determined that they failed to properly supervise their agent.
