WARNING! Investigation of JEFFERY WALDERA
Jeffery Waldera, from Onalaska, Wisconsin, Suspended for Five Months by FINRA
Have you lost money with financial advisor Jeffery Waldera of Onalaska, Wisconsin? We are continuing our investigation into allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Jeffery J. Waldera. FINRA brought a regulatory complaint against Waldera. FINRA was investigating Waldera regarding allegations that he borrowed $52,500 from three customers, in violation of FINRA rules and, likely, the internal policies of his brokerage firm, Robert W. Baird & Co. He failed to fully repay the loans.
FINRA entered into an agreement with Jeffery Waldera, in which Waldera agreed to pay a $7,500 fine. Moreover, Waldera was suspended from the securities industry for five months. However, brokers who are ordered to pay fines often do not pay them.
Jeffery Waldera was a financial advisor and registered representative of Robert W. Baird & Co. from 1999 to August 2016. He worked at a branch office in Onalaska, Wisconsin. Waldera also has one customer complaint on his BrokerCheck report. He also was terminated by Robert W. Baird & Co. for this conduct.
Brokerage firms like Robert W. Baird & Co. 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.
