FINRA Questions Marcus D. Parker on Misappropriating Client Funds
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on February 16, the regulator issued a letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent, in which Marcus D. Parker (CRD #1031962, Galisteo, New Mexico) was barred from association with any FINRA member in all capacities.
Without admitting or denying the findings, Parker reportedly consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he refused to respond to FINRA’s requests for documents and information in connection with its investigation of Parker’s termination from his member firm.
The findings stated that according to the firm’s Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration filing, it terminated Parker’s registration for his failure to appear for an interview and be questioned about misappropriations from client accounts.
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Parker was registered with Wells Fargo Clearing Services in Sante Fe, NM from September 2008 until December 2017 when he was terminated.
For FINRA’s full findings see FINRA Case #2017056689601.
