FINRA Bars Bryant Caveness for Failure to Cooperate with its Investigation
According to Financial Advisor IQ on July 27, citing a document from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator has barred financial advisor Bryant Caveness for failure to provide information in its investigation into his “potential receipt of checks from senior customers.” Consequently, he is barred from associating with any FINRA member at any time.
Caveness agreed to the bar without admitting or denying the findings, according to a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver & Consent (AWC).
According to his BrokerCheck profile, Caveness was reportedly registered with Ameriprise Financial Services from 2009 – June 2020 when he was reportedly discharged “for company policy violations related to personal trade, ethics and solicitation of exchange traded products.”
Caveness reportedly has two customer disputes on his BrokerCheck record. The first alleged unsuitable recommendations and was settled for $37,500 by Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, his former employer, without admitting liability, according to BrokerCheck. The second complaint also alleged unsuitable investments and was settled for $85,000, according to FINRA BrokerCheck.
