AdobeStock_49363801-1-300x200Recently, Norman Farra Jr., a former broker with International Assets Advisory in Tampa, Florida, was barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). FINRA alleged that he participated in undisclosed outside business activities and private securities transactions. These are against securities rules and regulations. This is also sometimes referred to as “selling away,” and is when brokers sell promissory notes and other investments through side businesses, in order to generate more commissions for themselves by offering securities that are not held or offered by their member firm. Firms such as International Assets Advisory can be sued for this behavior, as the firm has a duty to reasonably supervise its brokers. If it does not, it can be held liable for investment losses.
Farra was registered with International Assets Advisory in Tampa, Florida from April 2015 until November 2016 and has one customer dispute against him. He was barred from the industry by FINRA.
