The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has barred Southern California broker-dealer Brett Reed Barber from association with any member firm after Barber became uncooperative with FINRA's investigation into outside business activities Barber may have engaged in between 2008 and 2011.
A FINRA firm is obligated to supervise its Associated Persons' business activities, and may on a case-by-case basis be held responsible for the losses caused by "outside business."
Barber had previously been associated as a financial advisor with State Farm VP Management, Genworth Financial Securities and Newport Coast Securities, Inc. Barber most recently had been listed as President of Safe Money Strategies, Inc., located in Costa Mesa, California.
FINRA was unable to compel Barber to cooperate with their investigation. FINRA Case #2010021775001
