VSR Financial Services

Based in Overland Park, Kansas, VSR Financial Services is a full-service securities broker-dealer offering asset allocation, bonds, mutual funds, IRAs, and financial, retirement, and estate planning services. Founded in 1985, VSR Financial Services is the second-largest broker-dealer in Kansas, with about 200 representatives in 30 states.

Under regulations created and enforced by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), investors have certain rights that protect them from poor investment broker practices. One FINRA regulation requires investment companies like VSR Financial Services to oversee their representatives, which holds the company responsible for the actions of their licensed brokers. If a broker acts in a way that is not in the interest of investors that causes them loss or damages, the investor has the legal right to demand repayment from the broker’s license-provider.

A History of Negligent Behavior

$550,000 Fine for Failure to Supervise

In 2013, FINRA fined VSR over half a million dollars for not providing a proper system for overseeing brokers and holding them accountable. As a result, its brokers gave inappropriate recommendations to investors, costing them millions of dollars because of investments that exceeded the level of risk they limited their investments to.

$150,000 Fine for Poor Records

The State of Missouri required VSR to pay a fine in 2011 for bad maintenance of their record of transactions, making accountability difficult for investors and legal authorities.

Brokers Exceed Risk Tolerance for Investments

Broker Michael Shaw sold investors stock that exceeded their “risk tolerance,” essentially putting their money in a more aggressive context than they instructed. These unsuitable trades occurred as a result of VSR’s lack of oversight and enforcement of FINRA regulations.
