Moors & Cabot Terminated Robert Clark For Allegedly Taking A Loan From A Customer

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Robert Clark, a former Financial Advisor at Moors & Cabot in Boston, Massachusetts.  Robert Clark has been in the securities industry since the 1970s and previously worked for dozens of brokerage firms, including Morgan Stanley.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on July 19, 2018, Moors & Cabot discharged Robert Clark after it was alleged that he “violated firm policy by failing to obtain prior approval for an alleged loan the representative received from a customer.”

On September 21, 2018, FINRA sanctioned Robert Clark, barring him from associating with a brokerage firm.  The sanction was based on the same allegedly unlawful conduct which gave rise to his termination.  For a full copy of the FINRA sanction, click http://www.finra.org/sites/default/files/fda_documents/2018057361101%20Robert%20Todd%20Clark%20CRD%20810261%20AWC%20va%20.pdf

This is not the first time that Robert Clark has come under regulatory scrutiny.  In 2013, he was denied registration in the state of Michigan for allegedly engaging in “dishonest or unethical practices.”  He was also terminated by Morgan Stanley in 2013 over “concerns regarding use of discretion in multiple client accounts.”  He has also been the subject of three customer complaints, alleging unauthorized trading and breach of fiduciary duty.
