Morgan Stanley Advisor David W. Olson Barred by FINRA
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator has barred Florida advisor David W. Olson from the securities industry.
After initially cooperating with FINRA’s investigation, Olson reportedly refused to provide certain documents and information in response to FINRA requests for additional documents and information.
The findings stated that FINRA began an investigation regarding allegations that Olson was involved in an undisclosed outside business activity and that he solicited a loan from his member firm’s customer for that outside business activity.
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Olson was registered with Morgan Stanley in St. Petersburg, FL from July 2010 until January 2017 when he was fired for the above allegations. Olson has 8 customer disputes listed on his broker report. Allegations include misrepresentation, unsuitable investment recommendations and excessive trading, among others.
