A former LPL advisor who was suspended indefinitely by FINRA in October also has been suspended by the Texas State Securities Board (TSSB). The Texas regulator announced that it has suspended Jason N. Anderson, a Beaumont-area investment advisor, for 90 days for charging unreasonable fees to clients.
LPL Advisor Suspended for Unreasonable Fees
According to the TSSB, Anderson recommended an active equity-trading strategy to clients who stated a preference for achieving investment growth with a moderate amount of risk. The strategy included high trading costs. For the strategy to generate a positive return for clients, it would have to generate extraordinary returns to offset the significant trading costs and commissions.
The Texas watchdog deemed the trading costs and commissions an inequitable securities sales practice. It found that for one client, the trading costs were almost 30% of the value of the average equity in the client’s account.
LPL Advisor Jason N. Anderson Suspended by FINRA
In October 2017, Jason N. Anderson was suspended indefinitely for failing to comply with an arbitration award or settlement agreement, or to respond to a FINRA request for information concerning the status of his compliance.
According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck report for Anderson, Anderson was registered with LPL from April 2007 to February 2016. He was let go from the company in January 2016 for alleged misconduct, including discretionary trading in a brokerage account.
