FINRA barred former JP Morgan Securities and Raymond James Financial Services broker James Earl Mahan III for failing to cooperate with an investigation into his recommendation of an unapproved outside investment to a client.
The investigation states that in September 2015, JP Morgan filed paperwork terminating Mahan (CRD #5787176) for recommending an unapproved outside investment to a firm customer.
Similarly, Mahan's BrokerCheck report indicates that a customer dispute alleging damages in the amount of $101,000 also appeared in September 2015. The client alleged that Mahan solicited an unapproved investment between January and May 2015.
The record shows that after his separation from JP Morgan in May 2015, Mahan joined Raymond James, where he remained until the present industry ban in July 2016.
