Jeremy Jefferson Jacobson (CRD #4437801) is a Louisiana and Alabama-based broker who has been suspended by FINRA for making unauthorized trades in his customers’ accounts. He currently works with Topaz Asset Management but worked for LPL Financial until 2021. Jefferson has 21 years of experience and has passed five securities exams.
The BrokerCheck report filed on behalf of Jacobson shows that after being investigated, he accepted the findings of the federal regulator that he made trades, worth more than $1.1 million, in his customers' non-discretionary brokerage accounts without the customers' authorization or consent for the trades and in the process earned almost $8,000 in commissions.
Unauthorized trading occurs when your financial professional makes trades on your account without your authorization. Your broker must obtain your permission before buying or selling anything for your account unless you’ve signed a written trading authorization that allows your broker to buy and sell securities in your account without having to contact you. However, that does not mean your broker can misuse or exceed this authority. Brokers and their firms who make unsuitable or unauthorized trades may be held liable for any sustained financial losses.
