Regulatory Actions Against Brokers

FINRA has the right to take regulatory actions against registered brokers and broker-dealer firms for any rule violations. On July 31, 2019, FINRA barred Mr. Kraft for failing to respond to requested information related to a suspension notice. Furthermore, FINRA issued an indefinite suspension against Mr. Kraft on December 10, 2019, after failing to comply with an arbitration award issued by the agency in May.

Regulatory agencies such as FINRA may take action against individual brokers as well as broker firms. If a brokerage firm violates a conduct rule, such as failure to supervise (Rule 3110), they may be held liable for losses through arbitration.
