shutterstock_173509961The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) barred former LPL Financial LLC (LPL) broker Thomas Caniford (Caniford) after the broker failed to respond to a letter from the regulator requesting information. While BrokerCheck records kept by FINRA do not disclose the nature of the regulatory inquiry, in February 2015, Caniford was terminated by LPL for cause stating that the broker was terminated for 1) having custody and control of client funds in a bank account in violation of firm policy; and 2) failure to provide bank records requested by the firm.

In addition, Caniford has been the subject of at least two customer complaints and four financial liens all tax related. The customer complaints against Caniford allege a number of securities law violations including that the broker made investments in products not approved by LPL, also referred to as “selling away”, and direct theft and misappropriation of funds.

Caniford entered the securities industry in 1982. From March 2004, until March 2008, Caniford was associated with M Holdings Securities, Inc. Thereafter, from March 2008, until his termination in March 2015, Caniford was associated with LPL.
