Signator – In the News:

In re James Glover – A Signator broker reached settlement with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) resulting in a permanent bar from the securities industry. FINRA alleged that while Glover was employed by Signator, the broker misappropriated customer funds and sold unregistered securities products. Glover was associated with Signator from 1998 through May 2012. While associated with Signator, FINRA alleged that Glover wrongfully sold private placements, limited liability companies, and real estate related ventures. At least 25 customer complaints have been filed against Signator concerning the firm’s failure to supervise Glover’s business activities. Nearly all of the customer complaints accuse Glover of selling fraudulent real estate related securities and of mishandling the customer’s accounts.
