Wells Fargo Clearing Services Fires Sue Kinsey

Dec 31, 2021 Fired Brokers

Sue Kinsey (CRD #: 1645135) has been fired from her position at Wells Fargo Clearing Services, according to her BrokerCheck record, accessed on December 6, 2021.  

Employment Termination Details 

On October 6, 2021, Wells Fargo Clearing Services fired Sue Kinsey following allegations that she assisted a client in April 2021 with adding funds to an existing annuity contract without submitting the transaction to Wells Fargo for a suitability review and determination. The transaction was done directly with the annuity company. Wells Fargo further alleges that in November 2020 and March 2021, transactions similar to the April 2021 transaction were declined by Wells Fargo as they did not meet Wells Fargo guidelines. 

FINRA requires firms to supervise their brokers and ensure that they only recommend products that suit their customer’s financial goals and risk tolerance. Annuities can be complex products that can lead to losses, and firms should always thoroughly review these types of transactions.
