FINRA Bars Royal Alliance Broker John Swon IV after allegations of Misappropriated Funds
According to public records on FINRA’s website, the regulator reportedly barred financial advisor John Swon IV from the securities industry after he purportedly failed to provide information and documents requested by FINRA in connection with its investigation concerning allegations in a customer complaint that he misappropriated funds.
According to the complaint that prompted the investigation, the client alleges that Swon “misappropriated or otherwise mismanaged funds entrusted to him” as an investment advisory representative of Focus Financial Network, Inc.
According to Swon’s FINRA broker report, he was registered with Royal Alliance in Bloomington, MN from October 2012 until April 2021 when he was reportedly discharged for allegations that he “violated the firm’s policies regarding disclosure and approval of outside business activities.”
