OHO Bars Sharon H Goodale After Allegations of Improperly Signing Pre-Filled Applications

Attorney Advertising Disclaimer

A FINRA OHO panel barred former NYLife broker Sharon Hsun Goodale of San Dimas, California for failing to respond to five requests for information regarding an investigation into Goodale's termination by NYLife Securities LLC. The firm permitted Goodale to resign after she admitted to violating company policy by signing multiple pre-filled insurance applications without having witnessed the respective customers sign the applications in her presence.

OHO Disciplinary Proceeding #2013035445001

According to Goodale's BrokerCheck report, the NYLife separation was her second "employment separation after allegations" disclosure. In 2011, Altadena-based Chase Investment Services Corp discharged Goodale after she allegedly disposed of a client file and the contents of branch compliance folders because she was no longer the financial advisor assigned to the account.

The BrokerCheck report lists two additional customer complaints alleging misconduct in variable annuities committed while Goodale was associated with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. in Glendale, CA. Those two complaints were denied after "the firm found the mutual funds met the client's documented goals, risk tolerance and time frame."
