INVESTOR ALERT!  Investigation of ALEX ANDERSON and CETERA FINANCIAL

Cetera Financial Specialists Settles with FINRA Regarding  Failure to Supervise Alex P. Anderson

 

We are currently investigating allegations made against Cetera Financial Specialists, LLC, a Schaumburg, Illinois-based securities brokerage firm.  FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) brought a regulatory action against Cetera Financial Specialists, making allegations that it failed to supervise outside business activities of its representatives, including those acting as power-of-attorney for customers.

 

In particular, FINRA brought up allegations regarding Alex P. Anderson, a former representative located in Springfield, Ohio.  Anderson was alleged to have become power-of-attorney to two elderly customers, and he disclosed this relationship to Cetera Financial Specialists.  Anderson misused at least $75,000 of the customers’ money and was barred from the securities industry by FINRA.  Despite internal procedures of Cetera which stated that representatives could not act in this capacity for non-family members, the firm failed to adequately review Anderson’s disclosures.  To settle these allegations, Cetera Financial Specialists agreed to pay a $200,000 fine.

 

Alex P. Anderson was a representative of Cetera Financial Specialists from June 2004 to December 2014.  He worked at a branch office in Springfield, Ohio.
