Financial Advisor Gregory T. Dean, Worden Capital Management Reportedly Barred from Securities Industry

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the regulator has reportedly permanently barred Gregory T. Dean from associating with any FINRA member at any time.
According to the Letter of Acceptance, Wavier & Consent posted on August 16, between December 2014 and December 2017, while associated with Worden, Dean allegedly churned and excessively traded seven customers’ accounts. This trading, which purportedly heavily utilized margin, allegedly caused significant account losses and high commissions and fees.
FINRA alleges that Dean’s trading in the seven customers’ accounts was “excessive and conducted with reckless disregard for the customers’ interests.”
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Dean reportedly was affiliated with Worden Capital Management from November 2014 until June 2019 when he was allegedly discharged due to the recent bar by the Securities & Exchange Commission for prior regulatory violations involving using an alleged “in-and-out trading strategy that was unsuitable for customers in order to generate hefty commissions”.
He reportedly has 14 customer complaints filed against him, with one still pending, according to his broker report. Allegations include negligence, unsuitability, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and omissions among others.
