Gabriel Arnaud Dupin De Saint Cyr Fined & Suspended After Forging Form Signatures

FINRA fined Gabriel Arnaud Dupin de Saint Cyr of Torrance,California and fined him $7,000 for allegedly signing his supervisor's name on two "Change of Broker/Dealer Request" forms without her knowledge or consent.

FINRA Case #2010025255301

According to the investigation, while employed as a registered sales assistant with Waddell & Reed, Inc. in 2009, Dupin de Saint Cyr additionally obtained 10 "pre-signed" documents from six firm customers—including applications, acknowledgement of change of investments, designation of beneficiaries and account transfer forms that were blank or otherwise incomplete, but containing the customers' signatures.

FINRA also found that during this same period, Dupin de Saint Cyr forwarded two variable annuity ("VA") applications directly to an insurance carrier and without prior firm review.

FINRA charges that by forwarding the VA applications to the insurance carrier and by forging his supervisor's signature without her conent, Dupin de Saint Cyr's knowingly prevented Waddell & Reed from reviewing the transactions for suitability, pursuant to standard firm procedures and policy.

Waddell & Reed terminated Dupin de Saint Cyr's employment in 2010.
