Two Brokers Disciplined
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority revealed in its February report that it has disciplined two San Diego County brokers.
Robert John Clark of Vista was fined $25,000 and suspended 6 months for selling a private placement investment aggregating $350,000 to investors even though he was aware that the issuer had trouble making principal and interest payments to investors and had received a notice of default from the bank.
Kristopher William Bush was fined $10,000 and suspended 20 days. With his partner he mailed a hypothetical model portfolio to prospective clients, claiming falsely to some that it was a portfolio they managed. He did not have his superior's permission to make the mailing.
