James Nash (CRD #: 1579209), a broker registered with Avantax Investment Services, was recently permitted to resign from his position at Correll Co. Investment Services, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on December 27, 2021. Details surrounding his resignation have been provided below. 

Resignation Details  

On November 1, 2021, James Nash was permitted to resign from his position at Correll Co. Investment Services following allegations that he violated firm policy regarding discretionary accounts and unauthorized trading. 

What is Discretion? 

Brokers exercise discretion when they make trades in a customer’s account without first consulting the customer. Discretionary accounts allow brokers to execute securities transactions without any input from the customer.  

In non-discretionary accounts, a broker must have written authorization before executing a trade. FINRA Rule 3260 states that investors must give their written consent for a discretionary account and the firm must accept the account for discretionary trading as well. 

Making unauthorized trades in or facilitating unauthorized withdrawals from a customer's account is a breach of the duty to observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles, in violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
