Barred Broker: Benjamin S. Johnson Formerly of J.P. Morgan Securities
In January of 2017, Benjamin S. Johnson was terminated from his position at J.P. Morgan Securities. Soon after, FINRA launched an investigation into his conduct while he was employed at this firm. Specifically, this investigation centered around allegations that Mr. Johnson failed to report at least seven liens and judgements that were entered against him.
Under securities industry rules, all liens and judgements must be disclosed. Investors have a legal right to know basic financial and background information about their financial representatives.
Though he acknowledged that he received the request from FINRA, Mr. Johnson declined to provide documents or records. Without admitting or denying any wrongdoing, he consented to a permanent bar from the industry.
