After Securities America discharged representative Bruce Page Barber of the firm's Colorado Springs branch based on allegations that he participated in an unapproved outside business activity and solicited customers to purchase an unapproved securities product, FINRA subsequently barred Barber from the securities industry.
FINRA's investigation states that Barber (CRD #3095959) failed to cooperate with their investigation into allegations that Barber engaged in an undisclosed outside business activity by serving as an advisor to the Board of Directors for a firm called "ABC, LLC," for which he received compensation.
The investigation also alleged that ABC Board advisor Barber solicited 15 Securities America customers to invest in ABC's private securities offering, which the firm similarly had not approved.
Barber's BrokerCheck report discloses just two outside business activities: 1) Insurance sales in Colorado Springs, and 2) Investment advisor at Securities America Advisors (also CO). Barber's insurance agency is known as Partners Group / Bruce P. Barber.
