Former Janney Montgomery Scott Financial Advisor, John Joseph Cahill, Barred By FINRA For Refusing To Cooperate In FINRA Investigation Into Allegations That He Commingled And/Or Converted Funds Of An Elderly Customer

John Joseph Cahill (CRD # 1240551) was a Financial Advisor at Janney Montgomery Scott in Upper Saddle River, NJ.  John Joseph Cahill has been in the securities industry since 1984 and previously worked at Morgan Stanley and Citigroup Global Markets.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), FINRA barred John Cahill from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with a broker-dealer firm for refusing to “provide documents and information and to appear and provide on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA in connection with an investigation into allegations that he commingled and/or converted funds belonging to, and served as power-of-attorney for, an elderly individual who was his customer while he was associated with his former member firm.”

Janney Montgomery Scott “discharged” John Cahill in connection with these allegations.  In August 2013, John Cahill “voluntarily resigned” from Morgan Stanley for “ALLEGATIONS RELATING TO EMPLOYEE’S COMPLIANCE WITH REQUIREMENT TO CONTACT CLIENT PRIOR TO EXECUTING SECURITIES TRANSACTION.”

In addition, John Cahill was the subject of a March 2012 customer complaint alleging, “EXECUTOR OF ESTATE VERBALLY ALLEGED, INTER ALIA, THAT INVESTMENTS IN CLIENT’S ACCOUNT WERE NOT SUITABLE”  The matter settled for $42,100.
