WARNING! Impending Investigation: MOLONEY SECURITIES CO. and ROBERT THEMM
Moloney Securities Co. and Robert Themm
We are currently investigating allegations made against Moloney Securities Co., Inc., a Manchester, Missouri-based securities brokerage firm. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) brought a regulatory action against Moloney Securities Co., making allegations that Moloney failed to adequately supervise one of their brokers, Robert Themm.
Robert Themm was previously discharged from another brokerage firm for borrowing money from a client, which is generally not allowed in the securities industry, except for limited circumstances. Despite having notice of his termination for borrowing money, FINRA alleged that Moloney Securities failed to adequately and timely investigate claims made by one of their customers. One elderly customer alleged that she loaned Themm $4,000, and that he repeatedly failed to sell antique medals that Themm recommended that she purchase. To settle these allegations, Moloney Securities agreed to pay a $15,000 fine.
Robert Themm was a former registered representative and financial advisor with Moloney Securities from July 2011 to March 2014. He has been barred from the securities industry by both FINRA and the Michigan Securities Bureau. Themm worked at a branch office in Saginaw, Michigan.
Broker-dealers like Moloney Securities have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm, including investments sold by their registered representatives. Broker-dealers also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations, such as to refrain from borrowing money from customers. When broker-dealers fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
