IIROC announces date to schedule disciplinary hearing for Roger Carl Schoer

TORONTO, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - A Hearing Panel of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) will meet to schedule a disciplinary hearing in the matter of Roger Carl Schoer.

The hearing concerns allegations that Mr. Schoer induced clients and other individuals to give him money by misrepresenting the payments as private placement investments in various small corporate entities. It is further alleged that Mr. Schoer used the funds to pay off other clients and individuals who previously invested in private placements, or to pay unrelated personal debts. This alleged activity constitutes conduct unbecoming and detrimental to the public interest, contrary to IIROC Rule 29.1.

Set Date Hearing: 
Location:     
10:00 am, Wednesday, January 26, 2011
IIROC Boardroom 2, 121 King Street West, Suite 1600, Toronto

The set date hearing is open to the public, unless the panel orders otherwise. The date for the discipline hearing will be made available at www.iiroc.ca.

The alleged violations occurred between 2002 and 2007. IIROC formally began the investigation into Mr. Schoer's conduct in January 2008. The allegations occurred when Mr. Schoer was a Registered Representative with the Toronto head offices of Octagon Capital Corp. and Standard Securities Capital Corp., both IIROC-regulated firms. Mr. Schoer is no longer registered with an IIROC-regulated firm.
