M Holdings Securities – In the News:
In re M Holdings Securities, Inc., AWC No. 2006006455001 – M Securities was censured and fined $90,000 and ordered to pay $30,963.26, plus interest, in restitution to customers, and required to revise its supervisory procedures regarding fair pricing reviews of fixed income transactions. FINRA found that the firm sold corporate bonds to a customer and failed to sell such bonds at a price that was fair, taking into consideration market conditions with respect to each bond at the time of the transaction, the expense involved and that the firm was entitled to a profit. In each alleged instance, the same registered representative who was employed in a branch office sold the bonds. The findings stated that the firm’s supervisory system did not provide for supervision reasonably designed to achieve compliance with applicable securities laws for fair pricing reviews of fixed income transactions and qualifying supervisory personnel.
