INVESTIGATION of Advisor JAMES KENNEDY – Madison, MS
James Kennedy, formerly with Woodbury Financial Services, Barred by FINRA
Have you lost money with financial advisor James Kennedy? We are looking into allegations made about James Garland Kennedy, Jr. from Madison, Mississippi. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) barred Kennedy from the securities industry. FINRA alleged that Kennedy has failed to adequately respond to its investigation, after he was terminated by his former brokerage firm, Woodbury Financial Services. Woodbury allowed Kennedy to resign after he was alleged to have engaged in an unapproved outside business activity involving a financial transaction with a couple of clients.
James Kennedy was a financial advisor and registered representative of Woodbury Financial Services from 2007 to March 2020. He worked in a branch office in Madison, Mississippi.
Brokerage firms like Woodbury Financial Services 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.
