The findings in this matter state that she refused to provide information and documents that FINRA had requested during its investigation into allegations against Stacy Cheney-Jamison that she was involved in private securities transactions and falsified client account forms.

What Does This Mean?
It can prove to be incredibly harmful to investors when securities brokers engage in unauthorized securities transactions outside the scope of their member firm. This can often create significant conflicts that can cause brokers to recommend privately traded investments to investors that are woefully unsuited for them. Brokers may begin recommending investments that they themselves have a financial stake in, or recommend investments because they are receiving cash incentives from a third party, or they may simply be recommending private investments because of the incredibly high commissions they receive when doing so. Regardless, it is the job of the securities firm to prevent investors from being harmed by a broker’s conflict of interest. The fact that a broker does not disclose their involvement in an outside security does not free the firm from liability as they should have adequate procedures in place designed to supervise their registered brokers and prevent them from engaging in any unauthorized activity.
