Gregory Bauer-Former H. Beck Broker-Barred from Securities Industry for Theft

October 2016-Moon Township, PA

The FINRA records of  Gregory R. Bauer,  a  former stockbroker who most recently was  employed by  H. Beck, Inc.  disclose a final 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 recently resolved FINRA Case 2016051501801, Bauer was permanently barred from the securities industry to resolve allegations that he forged the signatures of firm customers, caused the unauthorized sale of securities, intercepted checks in the mail, deposited the checks in his own bank account, and used the funds for his personal expenses without permission. The findings state that Bauer took more than $400,000 from the customers.

In September 2016 Bauer was discharged by H. Beck, Inc. who made the following allegation on Bauer’s FINRA record: “Misappropriated funds of two client accounts at his prior broker dealer Waddell & Reed.”

Bauer was employed by H. Beck, Inc. from 10/2013-9/2016. Prior to that he was employed by Waddell & Reed from 10/2004-10/2013.
