20-Day FINRA Suspension 

On November 27, 2023, Ronald Morse entered into an Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent agreement (AWC) with FINRA in order to settle with the regulator without admitting or denying the findings. The AWC alleged that Ronald Morse created and updated a customer profile document for a senior customer that included inaccurate information and affixed the customer’s signature to the profile without the customer’s permission. 

The customer allegedly complained that Ronald Morse made inaccurate changes to her investment objectives, risk tolerance, and liquid net worth. These alleged changes may have put the investor at risk for unsuitable investment recommendations. Following communications with the customer, Ronald Morse revised the customer profile document, which contained some of the changes but maintained inaccuracies regarding the customer’s investment needs. 

Terms of the AWC 

As part of the terms of the AWC, Ronald Morse consented to a 20-day suspension and a $5,000 fine.
