The SEC has censured Ameriprise Financial Services for failing to protect clients from broker misconduct, including theft of investor assets by several brokers. Ameriprise has agreed to the censure and will pay a penalty of $4.5 million to settle the charges.  

Five Ameriprise Brokers Commit Fraudulent Acts

According to the SEC order, five Ameriprise brokers committed fraudulent acts including document forgery and stealing more than $1 million in client funds over a four-year period. The five brokers were based in Minnesota, Ohio, and Virginia and previously pled guilty to criminal charges. Ameriprise filed the five brokers for stealing client money.

The SEC found that Ameriprise failed to implement policies and procedures designed to protect investor assets and as a result was unable to prevent the theft. Since the incident, Ameriprise has implemented a new system to safeguard clients’ money, and has reimbursed all clients for the losses they incurred due to its brokers’ misconduct.
