The Allegations

William Jordan Jr. was officially sanctioned by FINRA in July 2016. The findings in this matter state that he executed seven sets of pre-arranged, round trip transactions in municipal securities. Jordan allegedly sold municipal securities to an inter-dealer broker only to purchase them back at a slightly higher price. This alleged, deceptive practice was done to create fictitious growth in securities market activity. Due to these alleged actions, he was fined $7,000, forced to pay $25,657 in disgorgement, and suspended from acting as a securities broker in any fashion for a period of one year.
