Wells Fargo was censured and fined $1,000,000 by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority over its lack of supervision related to the preparation and dissemination of consolidated reports showing a customer’s financial holdings.
According to the FINRA findings, between June 2009 and June 2015, Wells Fargo brokers were allowed to prepare consolidated reports for customers using various software programs available to them. FINRA found that the supervisory system was inadequate because there was no mechanism in place to distinguish between reports that were drafted by brokers and never sent to customers and those reports that were completed and sent to customers.
