According to publicly available records V. Cullen Kempson III (CRD#1280887) , a stockbroker currently registered with American Portfolios Financial Services, Inc discloses a prior regulatory event and a termination from employment.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms. FINRA requires brokers and brokerage firms to report customer complaints and disputes as well as regulatory sanctions. In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.
In May 2017 FINRA suspended Kempson for 30 days and fined him $5,000 to resolve allegations that he effected 40 unauthorized trades in a deceased customer’s accounts. While he had written authority to trade the account with discretion while the customer was alive, he did not have that authority follow the customers’ death.
In June 2016 Kempson was discharged by Commonwealth Financial Network who alleged: ” RR failed to provide notification to the firm of the death of two advisory clients in violation of firm policy and industry standards of conduct. “
Kempson has been with American Portfolios Financial Services since 6/2016. He was previously with Commonwealth Financial Network. He discloses a business affiliation with Kempson & Tschopp.
