Ted Wayne Cadwallader Barred: Allegedly Failed to Comply with FINRA’s Investigation Regarding Alleged Undisclosed Business Activity

investor rights attorneysIn November of 2014, Ted Wayne Cadwallader, previously associated with Ameriprise, allegedly failed to cooperate with a FINRA investigation by refusing to appear for “on-the-record testimony” requested pursuant to FINRA Rules, in connection with an investigation involving potential issues related to private securities transactions and outside business activity disclosures according to a FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC).

FINRA embarked on an investigation into Cadwallader in August of 2014, whilst he was still associated with Ameriprise, looking into whether he had allegedly engaged in private securities transactions and failed to accurately disclose his OBA activities on his OBA approval forms, the AWC further alleges.

Cadwallader Acknowledges Receiving FINRA’s request, Refused to Appear for Testimony, Allegedly

As part of its persistent investigation, FINRA sent a request to Cadwallader on November 21, 2014 for on-the-record testimony pursuant to FINRA Rules, the AWC reports.

In addition, the AWC alleges that Cadwallader acknowledged that he received FINRA’s request, and that he reportedly would not appear for on-the-record testimony at any time, and that by refusing to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested pursuant to FINRA Rules, he was in violation of FINRA by-laws. As, a result, the AWC reports, Cadwallader consented to the imposition of the following sanctions: a bar from associating with any FINRA member in any capacity.
