LPL Financial FINED $6.5 Million for Failure to Supervise
LPL Financial Settles with FINRA for $6.5 Million Regarding Supervisor and Record Retention Failures
We are currently investigating allegations made against LPL Financial, a Fort Mill, South Carolina-based securities brokerage firm. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) brought a regulatory action against the brokerage firm (who also has major offices in Boston and San Diego), making allegations for its failure to supervise the use of consolidated reports. The firm was also alleged to have failed to properly retain certain records, and that it failed to adequately fingerprint and screen associated persons.
To settle these allegations, LPL Financial agreed to pay a $6.5 million fine.
