James Gregory Nixon Allegedly Received Loans and Gifts from Customers
Between January 2012 and October 2013, James Gregory Nixon allegedly accepted improper gifts including $5,000 in loans and $7,000 in monetary gifts from customers from his member firm, JP Morgan, according to a FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) currently under review by attorneys Jason Kane and Joe Peiffer.
The Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane investor rights lawyers are currently investigating James Gregory Nixon, who also, according to the AWC, allegedly falsely reported on JP Morgan’s annual certification that he had not obtained loans or gifts from customers.
Moreover, Nixon, who first entered the securities industry in January of 2007 with a FINRA-regulated entity and was approved as a General Securities Representative on April 4, 2007, also allegedly provided materially false responses and misleading information to JP Morgan when questioned regarding the aforementioned loans and gifts, according to the AWC currently being poured over by attorneys Jason Kane and Joe Peiffer.
As a result of Nixon’s alleged misconduct, he violated FINRA Rules which prohibit providing false and misleading information to one’s member firm, the AWC further notes. Consequently, following FINRA’s investigation, Nixon was terminated from JP Morgan on May 5, 2014.
In answer to Nixon’s alleged violations, FINRA has handed down a 12-month suspension from associating with any member of FINRA in any capacity, a fine of$20,000, and an order to pay restitution to in the amount of $4,550, plus interest.
