David C. Ferwerda, Signator Investors, Grand Rapids, MI – Suspended by CFP Board
Are you concerned about investments with David C. Ferwerda in Grand Rapids, MI? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim.
According to a notice on the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. website, on June 13, 2019, the CFP Board imposed an automatic interim suspension temporarily suspending Ferwerda’s right to use the CFP® certification marks.
The Board reportedly imposed an automatic interim suspension after receiving evidence that Ferwerda entered into a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (FINRA) on October 30, 2018.
According to FINRA’s findings the regulator has reportedly barred Ferwerda from associating with any FINRA member in any capacity after he allegedly refused to provide information and documents.
FINRA was reportedly investigating Ferwerda’s alleged participation in sales of notes of a group of unregistered investment companies including Woodbridge Group of Companies LLC, and 1 Global Capital LLC.
Under the automatic interim suspension order, Ferwerda’s right to use the CFP® certification marks is suspended pending CFP Board’s completed investigation and possible further disciplinary proceedings.
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Ferwerda was a registered representative with Signator Investors in Grand Rapids, Michigan from September 2012 through March 2018 when he was allegedly fired for “Involvement in the sale of unapproved outside investments in violation of firm policy.” Ferwerda reportedly has 5 disclosure events listed on his broker report.
