According to public records on FINRA’s website, the regulator filed a complaint alleging that Manor participated in an unapproved outside business activity with his member firm’s customer, a then 75-year-old retiree, and purportedly failed to disclose his participation in the outside business activity or his alleged compensation from this participation to the firm.
The complaint alleges that specifically, Manor assisted the customer in selling mineral rights the customer owned in connection with a property in Texas. The customer then reportedly compensated Manor for the sale with $107,000. FINRA alleges that these activities and payments are outside of the scope of Manor’s association with the firm.
Manor purportedly recommended and purchased unsuitable S&P 500 Index put options totaling $224,985.37 in the customer’s Schwab account, reportedly resulting in losses to the customer of approximately $224,837 in less than three months.
Consequently, Manor was reportedly suspended from working in the securities industry for nine months.
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Manor was reportedly affiliated with Wells Fargo Clearing Services in Boston, MA from August 2016 until February 2018 when he allegedly voluntarily resigned after allegations.
