April 16, 2018 – An OHO decision became final in which McCollam was fined $10,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for nine months. McCollam initially appealed the decision to the NAC but later withdrew the appeal, and the NAC determined not to call this matter for review. The sanctions were based on findings that McCollam willfully failed to timely disclose two customer arbitrations and six written customer complaints on a Form U4. FINRA failed to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that McCollam had notice of another customer complaint before he filed the Form U4. Therefore, the Hearing Panel declined to find that McCollam should have disclosed it on the Form U4 he filed.
