James Larkin Powers; Du Pasquier & Co.; New York, New York

According to a recent Disciplinary Proceeding with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), James Larkin Powers, a former broker at du Pasquier & Co., was alleged to have violated securities laws. Powers allegedly created fictitious trades between his firm trading account and his personal account for his own profit, converted customer funds, caused his firm to create trade confirmations that misrepresented the prices of customers’ trades and hid a loss he incurred in a firm trading account by repeatedly entering unauthorized, fictitious customer trades and subsequently cancelled them before settlement. He allegedly received at least $388,133 in illicit trading profits from these transgressions. He also allegedly converted customer funds and made material omissions. These are all against securities rules and regulations.
