Investigation of Thomas McDevitt from Ameriprise Financial Services by Haselkorn & Thibaut

Investors are often left in the dark when it comes to allegations of misconduct against their financial advisors. One such case is that of Thomas McDevitt, previously affiliated with AMERIPRISE FINANCIAL SERVICES, INC. (CRD 6363), who has recently been accused of failing to comply with an arbitration award or settlement agreement. This allegation is serious and requires an understanding of the rules and regulations put in place by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

Understanding the Allegation and FINRA Rule

The allegation against McDevitt is based on his failure to comply with an arbitration award or settlement agreement, or to satisfactorily respond to a FINRA request to provide information concerning the status of compliance. This is a violation of the FINRA Rule 9554, according to Article VI, Section 3 of FINRA By-Laws. The rule essentially requires all financial advisors to comply with the terms of any arbitration awards or settlement agreements made in connection with their professional activities.

Why It Matters for Investors

Such allegations are of great significance to investors. Non-compliance with arbitration awards or settlement agreements can result in investors not receiving the financial compensation they are due. Furthermore, failure to respond to FINRA’s information requests can hinder the authority’s ability to protect the rights and interests of investors.
