Outside Business Activity

FINRA Rule 3270 prohibits outside business activities of registered brokers unless they have approval from their firm. Firms must approve outside businesses as part of their supervisory responsibilities. For instance, there could be a conflict of interest if a broker recommends shares of a company they own.

Firms must also consider whether the outside activity will:

  1. Interfere with or compromise the broker’s responsibilities to the brokerage firm.
  2. Be viewed by customers as part of the brokerage firm’s business. Brokerage firms do not want customers to believe brokers are offering securities they have approved when that may not be the case.

Criminal Charge

Khalil Watts also has a criminal charge for stalking on his record.
