Murray Sinclaire – Murray Sinclaire Jr., Financial Advisor Suspended from Securities Industry | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses
Murray Sinclaire Jr. CRD #1365335
Murray Sinclaire Jr. has been licensed with Ross, Sinclaire & Associates LLC since 1989. According to Murray Sinclaire’s CRD, Murray Sinclaire was suspended from the securities industry for 6 months and fined $35,000 in October 2017.
According to FINRA: Murray Sinclaire consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he failed to ensure that his member firm’s personnel disclosed all material facts in documents used to sell an offering in which the firm was the sole underwriter and also failed to ensure compliance with Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) rules and the firm’s written supervisory procedures (WSPs), which required such disclosures. The findings stated that Sinclaire is the owner of the firm, and was the President, Managing Member and CEO of the firm. As such, the firm’s WSPs made clear that Sinclaire had ultimate responsibility to ensure that the firm was at all times complying with the rules of the MSRB and acting in accordance with its WSPs. Among other things, the WSPs delegated to Sinclaire the responsibility of ensuring that the firm disclosed to customers all material facts concerning securities transactions, including a complete description of the securities, consistent with MSRB Rule G-17. Murray Sinclaire was also the direct supervisor of firm personnel responsible for the due diligence and sales regarding municipal or private offerings sold or underwritten by the firm. Thus, Murray Sinclaire had ultimate supervisory responsibility for ensuring that all material facts were properly disclosed to the firm’s customers in connection with such offerings. The findings also stated that Sinclaire delegated responsibility for the review of the private placement memorandum to others at the firm, but had direct, personal and particular knowledge of his own conflicts of interest, which he should have ensured was disclosed in the private placement memorandum. Murray Sinclaire was negligent in his failure to do so.
