Broker Barred for Failure to Cooperate With FINRA Investigators
Following the string of customer complaints against broker Marshall Owen Isaacson, FINRA launched its own investigation into his conduct. Specifically, the investigation centered on whether or not Mr. Isaacson improperly made unsuitable investment recommendations to investors. Securities brokers must ensure that their investment recommendations are reasonably suitable for their customers.
In violation of securities industry regulations, this broker declined to provide documents or testimony. Under FINRA Rule 8210 and FINRA Rule 2010, registered representatives have a professional duty to cooperate with FINRA investigators. All brokers must provide testimony and records when requested by FINRA. Without admitting any wrongdoing in the case, Mr. Isaacson consented to an indefinite bar from the securities industry.
