CALGARY, Aug. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - An appearance has been scheduled before a Hearing Panel of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) for the purpose of setting a date for the disciplinary hearing in the matter of Donald Earl Phillips.
This matter stems from Mr. Phillips recommending the purchase of Flow-Through Limited Partnership Units to 11 of his clients. Mr. Phillips failed to know these clients, and failed to recognize that such an investment was unsuitable for them. In most cases, the purchase of the Flow-Through Limited Partnership Units was done on a discretionary basis.
The set date appearance is open to the public, unless the Hearing Panel orders otherwise. The date for the discipline hearing will be made available at www.iiroc.ca.
Documents related to ongoing IIROC enforcement proceedings – including Reasons and Decisions of Hearing Panels – are posted on the IIROC website as they become available. Click here to search and access all IIROC enforcement documents.
Set Date Appearance:
August 28, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. CDT, via conference call
Specifically, the allegations are that:
Between April 2006 and August 2008, Mr. Phillips failed to use due diligence to learn and remain informed of the essential facts relative to 11 of his clients, contrary to Dealer Member Rule 1300.1(a) (Investment Dealer Association by-law 1300.1(a) prior to June 1, 2008);
Between May 2006 and November 2008, Mr. Phillips made unsuitable recommendations for the accounts of 11 clients, contrary Dealer Member Rule 1300.1(q) (Investment Dealer Association by-law 1300.1(q) prior to June 1, 2008); and
Between May 2006 and November 2008, Mr. Phillips engaged in discretionary trading in the accounts of nine clients, without the accounts first having been approved as a discretionary account, contrary to Dealer Member Rule 1300.4 (Investment Dealer Association by-law 1300.4 prior to June 1, 2008).
IIROC formally initiated the investigation into Mr. Phillips' conduct in May 2012. The alleged violations occurred while he was a Registered Representative with the Winnipeg branch of Wellington West Capital Inc., which is no longer an IIROC-regulated firm. Mr. Phillips is no longer a registrant with an IIROC-regulated firm.
The Notice of Hearing which sets out the allegations is available at:
