Daryl Eugene Allison (Principal)
As his member firmís president and chief supervisory officer, Allison he failed to adequately supervise a registered representative because he did not ensure that the representative was registered with a state before the representative conducted business with clients in the state
Allison failed to adequately supervise another registered representative when he learned that her business had borrowed money from a customer. The firmís WSPs prohibit registered representatives from borrowing from customers. Allison did not properly follow up on this information; he did not ensure that the customer was repaid or examine the businessísbank statements to determine whether the representative had borrowed from additional customers. Even when Allison placed the representativeon heightened supervision, after learning of the loan from the customer, he did not begin conducting the quarterly audits the plan mandated until months later.
