Legend Securities entered into a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to resolve allegations that from October 2010 to October 2011, Legend Securities failed to tailor its anti-money laundering (AML) program to its penny stock liquidation business.
FINRA alleged that the firm’s system for reviewing trading activity was not reasonably designed to detect patterns of suspicious activity, given the volume of transactions being executed through the firm and the system for detecting and investigating red flags relating to penny stock trading was not adequate.
