James Hyland Involved in Investor Dispute

James Hyland (CRD #:1185748), a formerly registered broker, is involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record accessed on February 16, 2022. 

According to the allegations filed on December 6, 2021, James Hyland received personal loans from a customer and failed to repay all or part of these loans while employed with MML Investors Services between 2001 to 2015. The case was settled for $620,000.

On January 31, 2020, James Hyland was also fired from his position at Cambridge Investment Research following the same allegations.

A broker may only borrow from or lend to one of their firm’s customers if that member firm has written procedures permitting borrowing from customers. If there are written guidelines, the broker in question must follow all of those internal requirements together with the stipulations stated in FINRA Rule 3240, which governs borrowing and lending arrangements between registered members and their member firms’ customers.

A violation of FINRA Rule 3240 also constitutes a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons to observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in the conduct of their business.
