FINRA Filed An Enforcement Proceeding Against Broker, Michael Ahearn, For Providing False Testimony To FINRA In Connection With An Investigation Into His Sales Practices

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Michael Ahearn, a former Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Michael Ahearn has been in the securities industry since the 1990s and previously worked at Wells Fargo.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on July 30, 2018, FINRA commenced an investigation against Michael Ahearn for “providing false written statements” to FINRA.  On September 12, 2018, FINRA officially filed an enforcement proceeding against Michael Ahearn for, among other things, allegedly falsifying account opening documents for a trust account held in the name of an elder, vulnerable adult.  When asked about the false documentation, Michael Ahearn allegedly lied.  After the misconduct was discovered, Michael Ahearn was discharged by Merrill Lynch.

This is not John Cutshall’s first alleged indiscretion.  In 2014, he was terminated by Morgan Stanley for engaging in conduct that violated firm policy.
