Goodman & Nekvasil P.A, May Recover Your Investment Losses - Brant Andrew Ray, Suspended from Securities Industry

Brant Ray has worked for Cetera Advisors, LLC, Commonwealth Financial Network, and Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. Brant Ray was suspended from the securities and investment banking industry for 18 months and fined $10,000 by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). FINRA reports that Brant Ray consented to the sanctions and to the entry of the findings that Brant Ray improperly borrowed $50,000 from a 70-year-old customer. The findings stated that at the time of the loan, Brant Ray’s member firm prohibited borrowing from customers with certain exceptions not applicable here. According to FINRA, this loan met none of the exceptions to FINRA Rule 3240 or to the firm’s written procedures. Moreover, FINRA reports that Brant Ray failed to provide Brant Ray’s firm with prior written notice of the loan.

The FINRA findings also stated that Brant Ray falsely certified in an annual compliance questionnaire that he was in compliance with his firm’s prohibition against borrowing from customers. Additionally, the findings stated that Brant Ray provided FINRA with false information and testimony in connection with the investigation of Brant Ray’s loan from the customer.
