According to a recent InvestmentNews article, former Waddell & Reed broker Paul D. Stanley was barred from the industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Stanley was accused of violating his firm’s professional conduct, supervisory and compensation policies. He “allowed a rep who was not properly licensed to participate in solicitation of investment advisory business and directed a rep to conduct firm business during an internal firm-imposed administrative suspension,” according to his FINRA BrokerCheck report. These are against industry rules. Stanley’s former firm, Waddell & Reed, can be held liable for investment losses because the firm had a duty to supervise him while he was registered there.
