New England Securities Fraud & Broker Misconduct

New England Securities, like many other investment firms, have been the subject of securities industry disciplinary action for various types of misconduct. For example, in 2004, NASD fined New England Securities along with 28 other investment firms for failing to report on time. In this particular instance, late reporting was present in 57 percent of all cases with a total of 180 late disclosures.

The investment firm was fined $200,000. Timely reporting isn't just good form, it's essential. Failing to report on time is a violation of securities industry regulations. When reporting is delayed, investors miss out on pertinent information they must know before investing, such as customer complaints, regulatory actions and criminal actions.

In 2006, MetLife and some of its affiliates, including New England Securities, were fined a total of $5 million for providing incorrect and misleading information. This conduct was in direct violation of NASD regulations. These failures were allowed to continue for over one year.

There were two instances where New England Securities was fined in 2009, once in March and another in November. In March of 2009, New England Securities and 24 other broker firms were fined $2.1 million for failures in their review process for mutual funds as well as other securities industry violations. In November, the firm was fined over one million dollars due to email supervisory failures.
