Financial Advisor: Private Securities Transactions

Licensed financial advisors must adhere to FINRA rules, which exist to protect investors. One such rule, FINRA Rule 3280, prohibits financial advisors from soliciting customers to participate in any private securities transactions unless the financial advisor provided his firm with the appropriate notice and, if necessary, obtain the firm’s approval. A private securities transaction is defined as any securities transaction outside the regular scope of an associated person’s employment. Brokerage firms often have written policies that prohibit private securities transactions without prior written approval from the firm.

For example, a financial advisor recommends to a customer an investment called Future Income Payments, LLC. However, Future Income Payments, LLC was not an investment offered on the employing brokerage firm’s platform or provided in the regular scope of the firm’s business. The financial advisor also failed to notify his employer correctly and obtain the firm’s approval. This type of transaction would be considered a “private securities transaction,” as defined by FINRA Rule 3280, and would have been inappropriate.
