Spouse Dispute Leads to $625,000 FINRA Award

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

FINRA ruled against Morgan Stanley and Citigroup Global Markets in a case that alleged that a husband siphoned more than half a million dollars from his wife while acting as her financial adviser. The couple is currently seeking divorce in superior court in Los Angeles.

The issue between this couple highlights the troublesome area that surrounds the mixing of personal and professional conduct. Regulators warn that, at a minimum, accounts that are held by a broker’s wife should warrant a heightened level of scrutiny.
