According to his Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) BrokerCheck report, Jeffrey Rodgers is not licensed as a broker or investment advisor. He was formerly registered with Morgan Stanley in Bend, Oregon and Merrill Lynch in Bend. Mr. Rodgers was accused of receiving loans in violation of the policies of his member firm, Morgan Stanley. He did not request or obtain approval from his member firm for loans totaling $38,600 that he received from separate customers, and additionally failed to repay most of the loans. In one instance, his member firm reimbursed a customer $10,500. He also allegedly engaged in outside business activities when he was registered with Morgan Stanley, and received compensation for them. He did not provide written notice to Morgan Stanley about his activities. This is commonly referred to as “selling away” and is when a broker solicits securities without the approval of his member firm. It is against securities rules and regulations.
