In the Settlement Agreement dated July 28, 2017, the Respondent admitted that:

c)

on September 4, 2015, he misled MFDA Staff during the course of a compliance examination by stating that he does not have clients sign account forms before the forms are fully complete when he knew or ought to have known that this was false, contrary to MFDA Rule 2.1.1.
