The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) has suspended financial advisor John Frederick Griner from the securities industry for 15-business days and fined him $15,000. Mr. Griner’s sanctions arise from his improper use of discretion without written authorization.
John Griner was registered with Morgan Stanley in Athens, Georgia from March 2011, until his employment was terminated in October 2019. Morgan Stanley allowed Mr. Griner to voluntarily resign after allegations arose concerning whether certain options trades were properly confirmed with the client before they were placed.
