Woodbury Financial Services Broker Misconduct
Is your broker registered with Woodbury Financial Services? As a FINRA-licensed brokerage firm, Woodbury and all its registered brokers are held to certain standards in order to protect investors. Unfortunately, brokers and firms can act in their own interests rather than their clients’ best interests. When this happens, investors typically suffer substantial financial losses. If this has happened to you, you can have an investment fraud lawyer at our firm evaluate your claim.
Woodbury Financial Services has been the subject of FINRA actions before. For example, in December 2013, FINRA filed an action claiming that Woodbury Financial Services failed to retain electronic communications between July 2007 and December 2011. In January 2012, FINRA fined Woodbury for failing to establish, maintain, and enforce supervisory systems. In August 2011, FINRA filed the same type of supervisory failure claim against Woodbury.
