ORIGINAL POST-April 2017-Whitesboro, Texas
The FINRA records of Clyde D. Jones , a stockbroker who is currently registered with Titan Securities disclose 2 pending customer disputes, 2 prior final customer disputes involving viatical settlements and 2 terminations 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 FINRA case #15-02868 a customer of Titan Securities alleged damages of $425,649 for an unsuitable recommendation to invest in a viatical settlement. That case was settled in 12/2016 for $100,000.
In FINRA case#15-2480 a customer of Titan Securities alleged damages of $133,680 for misrepresentation and unsuitability in connection with an investment in a viatical settlement. That case was settled in 8/2016 for $135,768.
Jones discloses two currently pending customer disputes involving viatical settlements. One alleges damages of $100,001 and another alleging damages of $108,672.
A viatical settlement is a contract whereby a person diagnosed with a terminal illness sells their life insurance policy for less than its face value in order to obtain a portion of the proceeds while still alive. The buyer (investor) obtains the full value of the policy upon the death of the insured.
Jones has been employed by Titan Securities since 9/2015. From 1/2013-11/2014 he was with EDI Financial. Prior to that he was with Titan Securities from 8/2008-12/2012. In 8/2008 he was discharged from Eagle One Investments for failing to notify compliance about a customer complaint. In 4/2000 he was permitted to resign from Invest Financial Corp.
