MFDA Hearing Panel accepts Settlement Agreement with Corey McPherson

TORONTO, July 24, 2013 /CNW/ - A Settlement Hearing in the matter of Corey William McPherson (the "Respondent") was held yesterday in Victoria, British Columbia before a three-person Hearing Panel of the MFDA's Pacific Regional Council.

The Hearing Panel accepted the Settlement Agreement between MFDA Staff and the Respondent, as a consequence of which the Respondent shall pay a fine of $1,500 and $1,000 in costs.

In the Settlement Agreement the Respondent admitted that, on or about July 9, 2011, he failed to observe high standards of ethics and conduct in the transaction of business by falsifying a client's signature on a client account document required by the Member to facilitate the transfer of $11,000 from another financial institution, contrary to MFDA Rule 2.1.1(b).

The Hearing Panel advised that it will issue written reasons for its decision in due course. A copy of the Settlement Agreement is available on the MFDA website at
