IIROC announces set date hearing for Brian Vaughn Wilson

TORONTO, June 1, 2011 /CNW/ - A Hearing Panel of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) will meet to set a date for a disciplinary hearing for Brian Vaughn Wilson.

The proposed discipline hearing concerns allegations that Mr. Wilson failed to use due diligence to ensure that recommendations were suitable for his client, and failed to advise his client that he knew her substantial monthly withdrawals from her account could not be sustained by the return on investment, resulting in substantial depletion of the account. It is further alleged that the trading in the client's account was unauthorized.

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.

Set Date Hearing:    June 10, 2011 at 10 am
Location:      Boardroom # 1
    121 King Street West, Suite 1600, Toronto, ON

Specifically, the allegations are that:

From or about February 2006 to May 2009, Mr. Wilson:

(i)     failed to use due diligence to ensure that recommendations were suitable for his client,  contrary to IDA Regulation 1300.1 (q) and IIROC Rule 1300.1 (q); and

(ii)     engaged in unauthorized trading in the account of his client, contrary to IDA By-law 29.1 and IIROC Rule 29.1.

IIROC began the investigation into Mr. Wilson's conduct in November 2009.  The alleged violations occurred when he was a Registered Representative with the Ottawa branch of BMO Nesbitt Burns, an IIROC-regulated firm.  Mr. Wilson is no longer a registrant with an IIROC-regulated firm.
