No surprise here – 300 reps in limbo as Finra shuts down Jesup & Lamont Securities

Posted by on Jun 21, 2010 in Uncategorized | Comments(0)

You will recall that I have discussed the behavior at Jesup & Lamont in two prior postings. And it didn’t take long for the predicted result to occur. On Friday, FINRA shut down Jesup & Lamont Securities Corp., a principal unit of Jesup & Lamont, Inc.

You can read about it here. I don’t take joy in seeing these 300 brokers losing their livelihood. I don’t take joy in the stress caused to the unwitting customers of the firm. I only get to say “I was right.” Frankly, these 300 brokers will be better off working someplace where management seems to have a clue on how to run a brokerage firm.

I said this in a prior posting – don’t pull on Superman’s cape.

That’s the view of one Lawyer from Jupiter, Palm Beach County, Florida.
