Frank Kelly, Financial Advisor Suspended from Securities Industry | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses
Frank Kelly CRD #2028226
Frank Kelly is currently licensed with HD Vest Investment Services. According to Frank Kelly’s CRD, Frank Kelly was suspended from the securities industry for three months and fined $5,000 in June 2019. According to Frank Kelly’s CRD, Frank Kelly consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he engaged in an unauthorized trade in a customer’s account. The findings stated that the sale would have caused the customer to suffer a realized loss of $1,010, had the customer not detected the trade and complained to Frank Kelly’s member firm, which then reversed the trade. The findings also stated that Frank Kelly exercised discretion in the accounts of customers, when responding to their requests to disburse funds from their accounts. Although the customers had given Frank Kelly implied authority to exercise discretion in their accounts, none of the customers had provided prior written authorization and he did not obtain written authorization from his firm to make trades in the accounts on a discretionary basis. Frank Kelly’s use of discretion is aggravated by instances where he liquidated positions in a sum materially greater than the dollar amount requested by the customer and by the inaccurate annual attestation he submitted denying that he had used discretion.
According to Frank Kelly’s CRD, a complaint has been filed with the client alleged he was led to believe that the products into which he invested were suitable. The client further alleged he received poor advice and that the products were not suitable. According to Frank Kelly’s CRD, this complaint is currently pending.
