kevin-gunnip-short-term-tradingKevin Scott Gunnip (CRD#: 2701801) was previously employed as a broker with Morgan Stanley from 2009 until 2018. He was permitted to resign in February 2018 following allegations about whether he executed  some transactions for non-discretionary client accounts without confirming the trades beforehand in all cases.

Morgan Stanley recently agreed to pay almost $950,000 in fines and restitution for allegedly failing to supervise a broker who excessively traded corporate bonds and preferred securities for five years. Despite receiving alerts about the broker’s activities and a negative compliance report, Morgan Stanley checked with customers to see if they were satisfied and let the pattern of trading continue. The trading allegedly caused tens of customers to suffer “losses of more than $900,000.” The AWC signed by Morgan Stanley identified the broker by his initials, KG.

Gunnip has four other disclosures on his BrokerCheck report.
