February 18, 2016-

The Texas State Securities Board reprimanded LPL Financial and ordered the company to pay a $95,000 fine for supervisory failures that led to one of their brokers borrowing $2 million from a LPL customer.

Having received a tip that the broker had made a large loan from a customer, LPL initiated a review however the analyst performing the review failed to observe that the loan was from one of the broker’s customers.

Eighteen months later the same client made another $1 million loan to the broker. LPL received another tip about an improper loan and that the broker was selling inappropriate investments. LPL’s investigation this time around resulted in the termination of of the broker and a voluntary disclosure to the TSSB.
