Worden Capital Management Settles with FINRA for Over $1.5 Million Regarding Supervisory Failures
We are currently investigating allegations made against Worden Capital Management, a New York, New York-based securities brokerage firm. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) brought a regulatory action against Worden, making allegations that it failed to adequately supervise customer accounts for excessive trading or churning.
FINRA also alleged that Worden Capital Management interfered with customer requests to transfer their accounts to another broker-dealer, and that it failed to timely disclose customer complaints on brokers’ Form U4s and U5s. To settle these allegations, Worden agreed to pay a $350,000 fine and restitution of $1.24 million in commissions to customers. Jamie Worden, one of the owners and founders of Worden Capital Management, was also fined $15,000 and suspended for three months in a principal capacity regarding the excessive trading or churning.
