FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent No. 2019064899201

On January 26, 2021, Mr. Singh and FINRA entered into a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (“AWC”).  The AWC includes the following factual findings:

  • Between April 2019 and December 2019, Mr. Singh solicited six investors, who were not customers of JP Morgan, to invest a total of $500,000 in four private placement offerings through a venture capital fund.
  • Mr. Singh communicated with the investors verbally and in writing to inform them about offerings.
  • He encouraged the investors to invest and introduced them to an arranged discussion with a general partner of the fund.
  • Mr. Singh facilitated the transactions by sending the investors subscription agreements and wiring instructions that he received from the general partners.
  • Mr. Sing received a total of $5,500 in finder’s fees in connection with these transactions.
  • He did not provide notice to or receive approval from J.P. Morgan prior to participating in the transactions.

In addition, the AWC alleged that Mr. Singh engaged in unapproved outside business activities between April 2018 and February 2020.  Specifically, that he failed to provide written notice to J.P. Morgan prior to marketing apparel, vaping products, and event promotion services through two-commerce companies he co-owned, and prior to performing consulting services for a small business.

J.P. Morgan:  A Duty to Supervise

Financial institutions, like J.P. Morgan, must properly supervise financial advisors and customer accounts.  Brokerage firms are required to establish and maintain a reasonably designed system to oversee account activity, such as private securities transactions, to ensure compliance with securities laws and industry regulations.   When a brokerage firm fails to supervise its financial advisors or the investment account activity sufficiently, it may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
