PRIOR POST—May 2016-Boca Raton, FL

Larry C. Wolfe was registered with Herbert J. Sims & Co. from 3/2000-1/2016. According to a report filed by Herbert J. Sims, Wolfe was discharged by Herbert J.

Sims & Co. made the following allegations in connection with Wolfe’s discharge: “Broker exercised discretion, in a non-discretionary account, in making trades for an account without speaking with the client before trades in violation of, among other things, firm policies. In addition, broker failed to appropriately re-title client’s account upon learning that client was deceased, also in violation of firm policies.”
