FINRA v. Timothy William Stephens, AWC No. 2013036091101 - The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) barred broker Timothy William Stephens concerning allegations that the broker was involved in $8 million in improper Equity Indexed Annuities (EIA) sales. Stephens entered the industry in 1987 with Princor Financial Services Corporation, where he remained until February 2013. FINRA alleged that between July 2006 and November 2012, Stephens sold about $8.2 million worth of EIAs and that these sales constituted outside business activity (OBA). According to FINRA, Princor’s written procedures required its representatives to disclose OBA and obtain the firm’s permission prior to selling securities and that Stephens allegedly failed to comply with those requirements.
