UPDATE! TYLER WOODWARD of MML Investors Barred by FINRA

We are continuing our investigation into allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Tyler James Woodward. In March 2019, FINRA barred Woodward from the securities industry after he failed to respond to a FINRA investigation. FINRA was investigating Woodward after eight customers made complaints against Woodward, including allegations of conversion or theft.
FINRA alleges that Woodward persuaded one customer to transfer $117,000 to Woodward’s company, Precision Financial Research and Management. Precision Financial Research is not a registered brokerage firm.
Tyler Woodward was a financial advisor and registered representative of MML Investors Services from November 2013 to October 2016. He worked at a branch office in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Woodward is the owner of Precision Financial Research and Management.
Brokerage firms like MML Investors 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.
