FINRA charged principal Mark Foster of Pasadena, California with repeatedly failing to cooperate with a FINRA investigation into his activities.
According to the disciplinary proceeding, FINRA twice requested documents and information from Foster, who served as Registered Options Principal and General Securities Principal for Stern Fisher Edwards, Inc.
The findings state that in 2012, Foster left the firm with a Reason for Termination of "voluntary."
In 2014, Stern Fisher Edwards amended Foster's discharge, introducing a customer complaint alleging misappropriation of funds which occurred no later than in 2012, further writing that the firm settled the customer complaint for $625,000 and stating that "subject [Foster] was under internal review due to misconduct and was permitted to resign." Foster's reason for termination accordingly changed from "voluntary" to "permitted to resign."
