FINRA Sanctions Cadaret Grant for Ex-rep’s Alleged Ponzi-scheme

According to The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on Monday, the regulator has fined broker-dealer Cadaret Grant $200,000, alleging the firm failed to reasonably supervise a former broker in connection with a purported Ponzi-scheme.

Without admitting or denying the findings, the firm reported consented on June 4 to the fine and censure and FINRA accepted the letter.

From April 2014 to March 2017, the firm allegedly failed to reasonably supervise a registered representative, identified in the letter only as “SP,” for alleged multiple undisclosed private securities transactions, according to the Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent.

The private securities transactions were reportedly  “part of a Ponzi scheme that SP orchestrated, which resulted in millions of dollars in losses to its victims,” according to FINRA. The firm “failed to take reasonable steps to investigate red flags that SP was involved in private securities transactions,” according to FINRA.

This is reportedly the second time since 2012 that FINRA has sanctioned Cadaret Grant for failure to supervise in regards to alleged sales practice violations. The firm was censured and fined $200,000 on the previous occasion as well.
