Grim Assessment of Newbridge Securities Corporation’s Financial Health

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

The future of Newbridge Securities Corporation, a Boca Raton-based broker-dealer with a history of compliance issues, is in serious doubt.

According to a recent InvestmentNews article, Newbridge has potential future losses around $4.1 million, arising from investor arbitration claims against the firm. Newbridge has at most $627,000 to resolve such claims, according to its audited financial statement.

The firm’s auditor, an accounting firm Liggett & Webb, painted a dark picture of Newbridge’s financial future. “The Company has a large accumulated deficit and negative cash flows from operations,” Liggett & Web wrote in a letter on March 6, 2019 to the firm’s board.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) BrokerCheck database, Newbridge first became registered in 2000. Since then, the firm has been subject to thirty two disclosure events, including twenty eight regulatory events and four arbitrations. Frequent disclosure events made by a brokerage firm has long been seen in the industry as a giant red flag.

According to FINRA’s notice, dated May 2, 2019, as part of FINRA’s ongoing initiatives to protect investors from misconduct, the regulatory authority is keeping a close eye on designated member firms that cross specified numeric disclosure-event thresholds.

I learned two important things working with Eccleston Law. First, I made a friend and ally with Jim and Steph for life. Secondly, and this is a crucial life lesson - if you need counsel, then seek out the very best. Jim was referred to me by a most trusted source. I've never had to hire an attorney for anything. Now, I know the value of hiring an important partner. Meticulous, thorough and detailed in preparation is the best way to describe Jim. Brilliant too, I might add. Bottom line, I would highly highly recommend Jim and Stephany for your legal needs. One of the best life decisions I've ever made.
