The FINRA records of Vicente Davila, a former stockbroker who was last employed by Morgan Stanley , disclose a recent regulatory sanction, a recently resolved customer dispute, 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 7/2018 FINRA permanently barred Davila from the securities industry for failing to respond to a FINRA request for information in connection with a FINRA investigation.
In February 2018 a customer of Morgan Stanley filed a complaint alleging that he had loaned money to Davila and that additional funds were missing from his account for the time period of June 2017 – December 2017. In February 2018 that matter was settled for $77,684.
Vicente Davila was employed by Morgan Stanley since 4/2016. In February 2018 he was discharged by Morgan Stanley who made the following allegations on Davila’s FINRA record: “Allegations regarding the representative’s undisclosed loan from a client and his conduct involving subsequent money transfers from the same client’s account to a personal bank account of the representative and his wife.”
Davila was employed by Merrill Lynch from 11/2009-5/2016 and with Morgan Stanley from 5/2016-2/2018.
