The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) has suspended former Worden Capital Management LLC supervisor Henry Bones II. Mr. Bones consented to a two-month suspension from associating with any FINRA member in all principal capacities after FINRA alleged that he failed to reasonably supervise a former broker, Christopher Orlando, that excessively traded ten customer accounts.
Earlier this year, FINRA has barred Christopher Orlando from the securities industry for excessively trading his customers’ accounts. In December 2020, Worden Capital Management LLC was sanctioned more than $1.5 million by FINRA for, among other things, failing to establish, maintain and enforce a supervisory system, including written supervisory procedures, reasonably designed to achieve compliance with FINRA’s suitability rule as it pertains to excessive trading.
Mr. Bones, who was associated with Worden Capital Management LLC from November 2016 to December 2019, has a history of associations with firms that have been expelled by FINRA. He is currently registered with SW Financial in New York, NY.
