The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the largest independent regulator for all securities firms doing business in the United States. FINRA’s chief role is to protect investors by maintaining the fairness of the U.S. capital markets.
All stockbrokers and broker dealers (brokerage firms) are required to be licensed by and subject to the rules and regulations of FINRA. Each month FINRA publishes disciplinary actions against brokers and broker dealers. Discipline can range from monetary fines and suspensions, or in extreme cases, revocation of licensing and a bar from the securities industry.
See the FINRA website for current and historical disciplinary actions.
Kenneth Andrew Mauchin (CRD #2366345, Registered Principal, Sanford, Florida) was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. FINRA’s Enforcement Department did not seek restitution because the member firm reimbursed the customers. The sanction was based on findings that Mauchin withdrew $23,750 from customer accounts and used the funds to purchase cashier’s checks that he deposited into an account that he controlled. Mauchin falsely listed his work address as the mailing address for customer accounts, which prevented the customers from detecting Mauchin’s misappropriation of funds. The findings stated that as a result, Mauchin caused his firm to have false books and records. The findings also stated that Mauchin failed to appear for FINRA on the record testimony.
(FINRA Case #2011028452701)
According to FINRA records, Mauchin is not currently registered. He was previously registered with the following firms:
