Pennsylvania Fines Midsize Broker-Dealer $500,000 For Failure to Supervise

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

The Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities has fined Newbridge Securities Corp. approximately $500,000 for failing to supervise a broker in connection with sales of structured products.

According to the order, Pennsylvania found that from 2012 until 2016, Newbridge did not maintain a reasonable system for applying and enforcing written procedures pertaining to its sale of structured products by one broker in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania did not name the broker or the products sold in the order. 

Without admitting or denying the allegations, Newbridge agreed to the consent order.
