Randy L. Leslie, Edward Jones, and LPL Financial
Have you lost money with financial advisor Randy L. Leslie from Golden, Colorado? We are investigating allegations made against Mr. Leslie. Randy Leslie was recently fined $7,000 by the Oregon Division of Finance and Corporate Securities. Mr. Leslie was investigated by Oregon because he failed to disclose a number of items on his CRD report (which is generally available to the public), including failing to disclose four unsatisfied judgments and failing to disclose three compromises with creditors. Oregon’s complaint also discloses that Leslie was terminated by Edward Jones in September 2012 for unauthorized trading in his customers’ accounts. As part of his settlement with the State of Oregon, $4,500 of the $7,000 fine was suspended if Leslie was able to meet certain conditions.
Randy Leslie was a financial advisor and registered representative of Edward Jones from 2003 to October 2012. He is now currently affiliated with LPL Financial, from October 2012 to the present. Randy Leslie worked in a Denver branch office for Edward Jones, and he currently works at a Golden, Colorado branch with LPL Financial.
Broker-dealers like Edward Jones and LPL Financial 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, as well as internal firm policies. It is unlawful for an advisor to make trades in a customer’s account without their prior authorization, unless the advisor has a written agreement to do so with the customer.
