FINRA Permanently Bars Raymond T. Clark from Securities Industry on silverlaw.com

Former Dynasty Capital Partners broker ends 15-year career with numerous customer disputes.

After 17 years as a financial adviser, Raymond T. Clark has been permanently barred from the securities industry. This permanent bar follows Clark’s failure to pay fines and/or costs associated with a FINRA complaint. The complaint also alleges that Clark failed to appear for, or provide on-the-record testimony that materially impeded the agency’s investigation of his activities as a broker, including numerous acts of broker misconduct. In fact, through the years, allegations made by customers against Clark include:

  • Excessive and unauthorized trading
  • Fraud
  • Churning (excessive trading within a customer account to generate commissions without regard to customer’s best interest)
  • Unsuitability
  • Misrepresentation
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Negligence

In 2014, a hearing panel decision by FINRA determined that the allegations were valid and as a result, Clark was:

1. Suspended for three months and fined $6,000 for violating FINRA rules and using his personal email account to communicate with a customer

2. Suspended for four months and fined $10,000 for violating FINRA rules and making false statements to his firm

3. Suspended for two months and fined $4,000 for violating FINRA rules and failing to report a customer complaint to his firm

4. Suspended for an additional three months and ordered to required to take the requalification exam as a general securities representative and principal

All suspensions ran consecutively.

Previously in 2011, Clark faced a two-month suspension and paid a $5,000 fine for failure to follow firm policy regarding the use of his personal email account to conduct firm business and failure to disclose such use to the firm.
