james-schaedler-barred-refusal-to-produce-informationJames Schaelder Jr. (CRD#: 4264512) was registered as a broker with Wells Fargo Clearing Services from 2010 until 2017. Previously, Schaedler was registered as a broker with Merrill Lynch from 2009 until 2010. In June 2017, Schaedler was barred by FINRA from any association with a FINRA member firm following his refusal to produce information and documents requested in the course of FINRA’s investigation into Schaedler. 

FINRA’s findings stated that Schaedler exercised influence over a former elderly client, who ultimately amended her trust making him a partial beneficiary and the residual beneficiary of her $2.3 million dollar estate. The findings stated that the investigation was later expanded to include allegations that Schaedler also improperly received a $200,000 gift from a second elderly client.

Schaedler has three other disclosures on his BrokerCheck report.
