Peter Kim, a former stockbroker with Morgan Stanley, has been barred from the securities industry. According to FINRA, Kim refused to cooperate with an investigation into his alleged theft from an investor. Instead, he agreed to be barred from the industry and not deny the allegations to avoid future actions being brought against him.
Kim transferred approximately $200,000 from an investor’s account. The money was withdrawn without the investor’s permission, and placed into accounts held by Kim’s family and friends. It appears that the money was not returned.
