Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Fines Cantor Fitzgerald

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) announced that it has fined Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. $6 million and ordered disgorgement of nearly $1.3 million in commissions, plus interest, for selling billions of unregistered microcap shares in violation of federal law. Cantor Fitzgerald was also sanctioned for failing to have adequate supervisory or anti-money laundering (AML) programs tailored to detect 'red flags' or suspicious activity connected to its microcap activity. In addition, two of the firm's business executives were suspended and fined: Jarred Kessler, Executive Managing Director of Equity Capital Markets during the relevant period, was suspended for three months in a principal capacity and fined $35,000 for supervisory failures; and equity trader Joseph Ludovico was suspended in all capacities for two months and fined $25,000. FINRA found that Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.'s supervisory system was not reasonably designed to satisfy the firm's affirmative obligation to determine whether the microcap securities that it was liquidating for clients were registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission or subject to an exemption from registration. While Cantor Fitzgerald made a business decision to expand its microcap liquidation business in March 2011, it failed to ensure that its supervisory system included a reasonable and meaningful inquiry into whether these sales were lawful. Among Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.'s failings were insufficient guidance and inadequate training about when or how to inquire into whether a sale was exempt, and inadequate tools for supervisors to identify red flags associated with illegal, unregistered distributions. As a result of these failures, Cantor Fitzgerald and Ludovico, as the broker of record, sold billions of shares of thinly traded microcap securities between March 2011 and September 2012 without adequate review and due diligence, a significant portion of which were neither registered nor exempt from registration. These violations were accompanied by a failure to implement an adequate AML program tailored to detect red flags and patterns of potentially suspicious money laundering activity related to these sales.
