FINRA recently announced that William J. Gray, formerly of AXA Advisors, LLC in Woodbridge, New Jersey , has been barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. Without admitting or denying the findings, Gray consented to findings that he forged the signatures of a customer and brokers of his firm (AXA Advisors) on necessary paperwork for the customer’s purchase of a variable annuity. According to William Gray’s FINRA Broker Report (CRD), in a separate customer complaint, the customer complained that she was completely unaware of the purchase of the variable annuity and when she received the paperwork for the purchase of the variable annuity (after numerous requests) she noticed “irregularities” in the signatures on the paperwork.
Prior to working at AXA Advisors, LLC, and prior to forging the signatures on the variable annuity paperwork at AXA Advisors, LLC, William Gray worked as a financial advisor for the Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States, a registered broker-dealer based out of New York City.
