April 26, 2018 – An AWC was issued in which Traywick was fined $5,000, suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for three months and ordered to pay $10,000, plus interest, in disgorgement of a portion of commissions received. Without admitting or denying the findings, Traywick consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he recommended and effected unsuitable short-term switches of Class A mutual fund shares in a customer’s accounts. The findings stated that Traywick’s recommendations resulted in the customer paying unnecessary front-end sales loads with each new recommended purchase. The customer incurred losses of $5,113. Traywick’s member firm compensated the customer for the losses. Traywick did not have a reasonable basis to believe that the recommended mutual fund transactions were suitable for the customer.
