WARNING!  Glenn McDowell and Unauthorized Trading

 

Have you lost money with financial advisor Glenn McDowell of New York, New York?  We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Glenn McDowell, also known as Clemond St. Aubyn McDowall. FINRA filed a complaint against McDowell, alleging that he made at least 38 unauthorized transactions in a customer’s account during 2012 while he was registered with National Securities Corporation, a Seattle, Washington based brokerage firm.

 

FINRA alleges that Glenn McDowell made several purchases and sales of stocks without his customer’s permission, including Synergy Pharmaceuticals, Zynga Inc., Cardtronics Inc., Ventrus Biosciences, Vringo Inc., Amarin Corp., Fusion-IO, and Facebook.  FINRA alleges that McDowell earned about $3,500 in commissions for these transactions.  FINRA seeks to punish McDowell and order him to disgorge any ill-gotten gains.

 

Glenn McDowell was a financial advisor and registered representative of National Securities Corp. from 2001 to February 2013.  He worked at a branch office in New York, New York.  He was also affiliated with Woodstock Financial Group from May 2013 to October 2015.  McDowell has at least three customer complaints on his BrokerCheck report, which also discloses that he was discharged by National Securities Corp. in 2013 because of a customer complaint.

 

Brokerage firms like National Securities Corp. have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm.  Brokerage firms also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations, as well as internal firm policies.  When brokerage firms fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
