Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane is currently investigating claims against Jenna Brown, a registered broker at Lifemark Securities in Syracuse, NY.
According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck website for Public Disclosures, Jenna Brown has been the subject of two disclosures. Some of the more notable disclosures are as follows:
2018: Employment Separation After Allegations – Caderet Grant & Co. discharged Brown because “Brown self-executed client signatures to investment advisory agreements in place of obtaining their signature in violation of the firm’s policy and procedures and FINRA Rule 2010.”
2019: Regulatory – Regulatory Suspension of three months and Civil and Administrative Penalty of $5,000 imposed by FINRA. The suspension concerns allegations of “forged signatures…without the customers’ knowledge or approval.”
According to Jenna Brown’s Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent:
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 9216 of FINRA’s Code of Procedure, I, Jenna A. Brown (“Brown” or “Respondent”), submit this Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (“AWC”) for the purpose of proposing a settlement of the alleged rule violations below. This AWC is submitted on the condition that, if accepted, FINRA will not bring any future actions against me alleging violations based on the same factual findings described herein.
Forgery of a signature is a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires that associated persons observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.
By virtue of the foregoing, Brown violated FINRA Rule 2010
