On June 4, 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia State Corporation Commission denied Kane Waller’s re-registration application. He had attempted to re-register following a FINRA suspension. Waller had consented to the suspension following allegations that he had engaged in misconduct – keep reading for more details.
FINRA Suspension Following Allegations of Sharing Non-Public Trading Information
On December 2, 2019, Kane Waller consented to the findings that he shared stock trading information of one customer with Customer A, who owned the same securities. From 2012 to 2017, Customer A generated either the highest or second-highest commissions of any of Waller’s customers. FINRA alleges that on at least two occasions Customer A instructed Waller to trade ahead of the other customer’s order.
For instance, on one occasion Waller allegedly told Customer A that another customer planned to sell $100,000 worth of shares. In response, Customer A allegedly told Waller to “short another 50K” and “get ahead of that.”
FINRA fined Kane Waller $10,000 and suspended him for 90 days. You can read a copy of the AWC here.
