Fined $156,903.93 for Alleged Supervisory Failures In Ensuring All Eligible Customers Received Applicable Sales Charge Waivers or Special Share Classes (AWC No. 2021069460901)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

From September 2015 to September 2020, Securities America, Royal Alliance, and SagePoint failed to establish and maintain a supervisory system reasonably designed to ensure that all eligible customers received applicable sales charge waivers or special share classes in connection with rolling over 529 plans from one state plan to another. Some customers who were eligible for these waivers or special share classes did not receive them. Therefore, Respondents violated MSRB Rule G-27.

As more fully described below, FINRA credits Respondents for their extraordinary cooperation. Accordingly, this AWC includes an undertaking to pay restitution totaling approximately $515,000 plus interest, and censures, but no fines.

Fined $60,000 for Allegedly Withholding Important Information From Investors (AWC No. 2018060895801)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

Between May 4, 2018, and June 29, 2018, FSC Securities, Royal Alliance, SagePoint Financial and Woodbury Financial negligently failed to tell investors in an offering related to GPB Capital Holdings, LLC (GPB Capital) that the issuer failed to timely make required filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including filing audited financial statements. By virtue of the foregoing, each firm violated FINRA Rule 2010.

Fined $35,000 for Alleged Supervisory Failures In Complying With FINRA’s Suitability Requirements (AWC No. 2019061612601)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

During the period April 2014 through July 2017, SagePoint failed to establish, maintain, and enforce a supervisory system, including WSPs, reasonably designed to achieve compliance with the suitability requirements of FINRA Rule 2111 as they pertain to margin use. As a result, SagePoint failed to identify or reasonably respond to red flags of unsuitable use of margin in two customer accounts that caused the customers to pay more than $51,800 in commissions, fees, and margin interest. By this conduct, SagePoint violated NASD Rule 3010, FINRA Rules 3110 and FINRA Rule 2010.

Fined $63,274.73 for Alleged Supervisory Failures In Observing The Share-Class Suitability Factors (AWC No. 2019062531501)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

From January 1, 2013 through June 30, 2018, Royal Alliance, Sagepoint, and FSC failed to establish and maintain a supervisory system reasonably designed to supervise 529 plan share-class recommendations in violation of MSRB Rule G-27. These three Advisor Group firms shared written supervisory procedures that did not reasonably address the share-class suitability factors specific to 529 plan investments. In addition, the firms’ transaction review system was not reasonably designed to identify 529 plan share-class recommendations that were inconsistent with the investment time horizon suggested by the age of the account beneficiary.

The firms voluntarily self-reported potential issues with their supervisory system to FINRA as part of the 529 Plan Share Class Initiative announced in Regulatory Notice 19- 04 and proposed a plan to remediate affected customers. Accordingly, the AWC includes a censure for each firm and orders of restitution and estimated interest totaling $485,441 but no fines.

Fined $700,000 for Alleged Supervisory Failures In Imposing Heightened Supervision and Discipline to Specific Personnel (AWC No. 2019062873301)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

From 2013 to the present, SagePoint failed to establish and maintain a supervisory system, including written supervisory procedures, reasonably designed to supervise associated persons with histories of industry and regulatory-related misconduct. SagePoint failed to assign clear responsibility for imposing heightened supervision and discipline to specific personnel, splitting that task between two different departments with no guidance as to how the departments should coordinate or fulfill their overlapping obligations. Additionally, SagePoint’s disciplinary record keeping was haphazard and fragmented, thus impeding firm personnel from accessing complete information about associated persons’ disciplinary histories when assessing whether to impose heightened supervision or discipline. As a result, the firm failed to escalate discipline and impose heightened supervision when associated persons’ misconduct presented heightened risks and failed to reasonably follow up on red flags of misconduct. SagePoint also lacked a supervisory system reasonably designed to comply with its obligations to report to FINRA multiple instances of violative misconduct by associated persons, as required by FINRA Rule 4530(b). The firm thus violated NASD Rule 3010 and FINRA Rules 3110 and 2010.

Based on the foregoing, SagePoint violated NASD Rule 3010 (for conduct before December 1, 2014), FINRA Rule 3110 (for conduct on or after December 1, 2014), and FINRA Rule 2010.

Fined $200,000 for Alleged Supervisory Failures In Overseeing and Training That Led to Improper Sale and Supervision of Variable Annuities (AWC No. 2016047636601)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

Royal Alliance (between February 2014 and December 2015) and FSC, SagePoint, and Woodbury (between January 2013 and December 2014) failed to establish, maintain and enforce a supervisory system and written procedures designed to reasonably supervise representatives’ sale of multi-share class variable annuities and failed to provide training to their representatives and principals on the sale and supervision of multi-share class variable annuities. As a result, the Advisor Group Firms violated FINRA Rules 2330(d) and (e), NASD Rule 3010 (for conduct before December 1, 2014), F1NRA Rule 3110 (for conduct on and after December 1, 2014), and FINRA Rule 2010.

In addition, Royal Alliance (between February 2014 and March 2016) failed to reasonably supervise variable annuity exchanges in that it failed to implement a reasonable supervisory system and procedures to determine if any of its registered representatives had inappropriate rates of variable annuity exchanges. As a result, Royal Alliance violated FINRA Rule 2330(d), NASD Rule 3010 (for conduct before December 1, 2014), FINRA Rule 3110 (for conduct on and after December 1, 2014), and FINRA Rule 2010.

Fined $75,000 for Allegedly Disadvantaging Retirement Plan and Charitable Organization Customers Eligible for Class A Shares Purchase Without Front-End Sales Charge (AWC No. 2017054229301)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

Between January 1, 2011, and September 30, 2017 (the “Relevant Period”), SagePoint disadvantaged certain retirement plan and charitable organization customers that were eligible to purchase Class A shares in certain mutual funds without a front-end sales charge (“Eligible Customers”). These Eligible Customers were instead sold Class A shares with a front-end sales charge or Class B or C shares with back-end sales charges and higher ongoing fees and expenses.

During this period, SagePoint failed to establish and maintain a supervisory system and procedures reasonably designed to ensure that Eligible Customers who purchased mutual fund shares received the benefit of applicable sales charge waivers. As a result, SagePoint violated NASD Conduct Rule 3010 (for misconduct before December 1, 2014), FINRA Rule 3110 (for misconduct on or after December 1, 2014), and FINRA Rule 2010.

Fined $75,000 for Allegedly Applying an Inaccurate Accounting and Net Capital Treatment of Investment Advisory Fees (AWC No. 2016049751001)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

Between January 2010 and April 2016, Royal Alliance, FSC and SagePoint, and between January 2014 and March 2016, Woodbury applied an inaccurate accounting and net capital treatment of investment advisory fees. Subsequent adjustments to correct the net capital computations resulted in hindsight net capital deficiencies for Royal Alliance, FSC and SagePoint, and books and records violations and financial reporting inaccuracies across the Firms. During the time period of the violations discussed herein, Fields was the acting FINOP for the Firms.

Fined $300,000 for Alleged Supervisory Failures in Making and Keeping Customer Account Information (AWC No. 2007010991902)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

Between November 2003 and August 2008 (the “Relevant Period”), approximately 3,925 employees of a California County Office of Education (“CCOE”) were enrolled into the CCOE’s Deferred Compensation Program’s (“DCP”) 403(b)/457(b) plan (hereinafter referred to as the “Plan”). The majority of the Plan’s participants were directly enrolled by the Firm’s registered representatives (“RRs”). As part of the enrollment process, the Firm’s RRs offered the participants detailed asset allocation advice and provided specific investment recommendations. Despite the fact that the Firm’s RRs offered specific investment recommendations to its customers, the Firm’s written supervisory procedures did not require that the brokers enrolling the participants into the Plan record the customers’ investor profile information on a customer account application and did not require that the RRs maintain any customer files relating to the participants’ enrollment into the Plan. As a result, the Firm did not maintain or preserve records that would allow supervisory or other review of the RRs’ recommendations to determine whether they complied with the suitability requirements of NASD Rule 2310.

Therefore, the Firm failed to implement an adequate supervisory system, including written procedures, reasonably designed to comply with NASD Conduct Rules 2310(a) and 3110(a) and Section 17(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) in violation of NASD Conduct Rules 3010 (a) and (b) and 2110. Moreover, the Firm failed to make and keep customer account information in connection with the enrollment process in violation of NASD Conduct Rules 3110(a) and 2110 and Section 17(a) of the Exchange Act, Rule 17a-3 thereunder.

In addition, during the Relevant Period, the Firm permitted registered representative DP to simultaneously work as a full-time CCOE employee in the role of manager of the Plan and as an RR servicing the Plan as well as a supervisor managing other representatives servicing the Plan. However, the Firm did not implement adequate procedures to assess, investigate or inquire whether DP’s employment as manager of the Deferred Compensation Program conflicted with his role as an RR or with the Firm’s securities business. Accordingly, the Firm failed to implement a supervisory system reasonably designed to address any conflicts of interest posed by registered representative DP’s dual roles as manager of the DCP and registered representative/supervisor at the Firm, in violation of NASD Conduct Rules 3010(a) and 2110.

Moreover, between November 2003 and January 2009, the Firm failed to implement an adequate supervisory system, including written procedures, that was reasonably designed to achieve compliance with the correspondence-review requirements of NASD Conduct Rule 3010(d)(2) and, thus, violated NASD Conduct Rules 3010(a) and (b), 3010(d)(2), 2110 and FINRA Conduct Rule 2010.

Lastly, between April 2005 and January 2010, the Firm permitted DP to utilize an unapproved outside e-mail address to conduct securities-related business. As a result, the Firm did not retain all emails sent by and received by DP at the outside e-mail address. The Firm thus violated Section 17(a) of the Exchange Act, Rules 17a-3 and 17a-4 thereunder, and NASD Conduct Rules 3110,2110 and FINRA Conduct Rule 2010.

Fined $100,000 for Alleged Supervisory Failures In Verifying Client Funds And Securities (Docket/Case Number: 3-21759)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) deems it appropriate and in the public interest that public administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings be, and hereby are, instituted against Sagepoint Financial, Inc. (“Sagepoint” or “respondent”). In anticipation of the institution of these proceedings, respondent has submitted an offer of settlement (the “offer”) which the commission has determined to accept. The Commission finds that this matter arises out of the failure of Sagepoint, a registered investment adviser, to obtain verification by an independent public accountant of client funds and securities of which it had custody. From June 2017 to December 2022 (the “relevant period”), Sagepoint used a form agreement to govern certain aspects of the relationship among Sagepoint, its clients, and a particular clearing agent Sagepoint used (the “clearing agent”). Each of these agreements (“customer agreements”) included a margin account agreement that contained language, required by the clearing agent, that permitted the clearing agent to accept, without inquiry or investigation, any instructions given by Sagepoint concerning these clients’ accounts “the “affected accounts”). As a consequence of Sagepoint having this authority with respect to the client funds and securities in the affected accounts, Sagepoint had custody of these assets. Accordingly, because Sagepoint failed to obtain verification by actual examination of the client funds and securities in the affected accounts by an independent public accountant, Sagepoint violated Section 206(4) of the Advisers Act and Rule 206(4)-2 thereunder, commonly referred to as the “Custody Rule.”

Fined $7,500,000 for Alleged Multiple Compliance Failures (Docket/Case Number: 3-17169)

Overview from FINRA’s Disciplinary Office:

SEC Admin release 34-77362, IA Release 40-4351 / March 14, 2016: The Securities and Exchange Commission deems it appropriate and in the public interest that public administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings be, and hereby are, instituted pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Sections 203(e) and 203(k) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 against the firm (respondent). On the basis of this order and respondent’s offer, the Commission finds that this proceeding  arises from breach of fiduciary duty and multiple compliance failures by respondent. From at least 2012 to 2014, respondent invested advisory clients in mutual fund share classes with 12B-1 fees instead of lower-fee share classes of the same funds that were available without 12B-1 fees. The affected clients were advisory clients whom advisor group firms invested in a fee-based advisory service called the Advisor Managed Portfolio (“AMP”) in accounts that are not qualified retirement or Erisa Accounts, where 12B-1 fees are rebated. In its capacity as broker-dealers, respondent received 12B-1 fees paid by the funds in which AMP advisory clients invested. By investing these non-qualified advisory clients in the higher-fee share classes, respondent and two other firms received approximately $2 million in 12B-1 fees that they would not have collected from the lower-fee share classes. Respondent failed to disclose in its forms ADV or otherwise that it had a conflict of interest due to a financial incentive to place non-qualified advisory clients in higher-fee mutual fund share classes. As a result, respondent breached its fiduciary duties as an investment adviser to certain of its AMP advisory clients by investing them in higher-fee mutual fund share classes. In addition, respondent failed to adopt any compliance policy governing mutual fund share class selection. During 2013, respondent also failed to monitor advisory accounts quarterly for inactivity or “reverse churning” as required by under its compliance policies and procedures to ensure that fee-based advisory or “wrap” accounts that charged an inclusive fee for both advisory services trading costs remained in the best interest of clients that traded infrequently.  Even though Commission Examination Staff previously had cited the firm for failing to conduct such monitoring several years earlier, respondent did not conduct its inactive account review on a timely basis for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first and second quarters of 2013. By virtue of this conduct, respondent willfully violated Sections 206(2), 206(4) and 207 of the Advisers Act and Rule 206(4)-7 thereunder.
