Former Northwestern Mutual Investment Services broker Donnell Noah Bowen was recently barred from acting as a broker when he failed to provide FINRA with requested information and documentation related to an investigation into allegations of forgery of client signatures.
Bowen was with Northwestern Mutual from 2009 to early 2017 when he was allowed to resign while under internal investigation into allegations of forgery of client signatures on insurance documents.
Throughout 2017, he received multiple customer disputes on his report alleging fraud, forgery, the making of unauthorized changes to numerous non-variable life insurance policies, and unsuitable recommendations, among others. Of the disputes against him, 11 have been settled. One dispute from November 2017 is pending.
As the allegations of misconduct began piling up, Bowen signed a Mutual Termination Agreement from his position with Northwestern Mutual in January 2017. However, that didn't stop the FINRA from conducting an investigation into his alleged misconduct. According to FINRA, Bowen knowingly violated FINRA Rule 8210 when he declined to cooperate with the agency's investigation, failed to produce requested information, and failed to provide on the record testimony.
