According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on July 22, 2020, FINRA sanctioned Bryant Caveness, barring him from acting as a broker or associating with a broker-dealer. According to the FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent, “Without admitting or denying the findings, Caveness consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he refused to provide information and documents requested by FINRA in connection with its investigation into his potential receipt of checks from senior customers. The findings stated that although Caveness initially cooperated with FINRA’s investigation, he ceased doing so.”
Elder financial abuse is a growing trend in the financial serviced industry due to the aging baby boomer population. It is estimated that by 2030, baby boomers will control nearly $26 trillion in assets, which inherently creates opportunity for misconduct. The federal government and states have enacted enhanced legislation to address this issue but there is still a lot of work to be done.
