Investors Capital Corp. submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which the firm was censured and fined $100,000 by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Without admitting or denying the findings, the firm consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that it failed to ensure delivery of exchange-traded fund (ETF) prospectuses to customers in contravention of Section 5(b)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.
The findings stated that the firm failed to establish an adequate supervisory system, including written supervisory procedures, concerning the sale of ETFs and the firm’s obligations to provide ETF prospectuses to customers. The firm did not have any procedures directly concerning the sale of ETFs or its obligations to provide ETF prospectuses to customers and permitted representatives to sell ETFs before completing any firm-mandated training. (FINRA Case #2011025319501)
