The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Donald Logan, a former Financial Adviser at Waddell & Reed in Silverdale, Washington. Donald Logan has been in the securities industry since 2008 and previously worked at Edward Jones.
According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on January 11, 2019, FINRA sanctioned Donald Logan, suspending him from associating with any member brokerage firm for 18 months. The basis for the sanction was that Donald Logan was allegedly engaging in unauthorized trading in customer accounts.

Financial advisors have a legal and regulatory obligation to recommend only suitable investments that are appropriate for their clients’ needs and objectives. Their employing brokerage firm has a legal and regulatory obligation to supervise the Financial Advisors’ sales practices and dealings with clients. To the extent any of these duties are breached, the customer may be entitled to a recovery of his or her investment losses.
In addition, every transaction must be authorized by the customer prior to execution. The Financial Advisor must not only get authorization for the trade, but also the price and date on which the trade will occur. Financial Advisors who engage in unauthorized trading, or exercise time and price discretion, often do so in order to generate commissions. This type of conduct violates FINRA rules and internal compliance rules of their brokerage firm.
