On December 22, 2023, KCD Financial permitted Gregory Howell to resign. This followed allegations that he used his personal email to communicate with investors instead of the firm’s email. Firms require brokers to communicate via official channels in order to meet FINRA’s supervisory rules, which require firms to supervise their broker’s conduct, including their communications with investors.
