Loreta Salinas Nelson (CRD #1381052, Cathedral City, California) submitted an AWC in which she was assessed a deferred fine of $15,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for six months. Without admitting or denying the findings, Nelson consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that she engaged in an outside business activity without providing prior written notice to her member firm. The findings stated that Nelson served as a co-trustee for a former customer, and received approximately $47,000 in fees and expenses from the trust’s assets as compensation for that activity. Nelson was also appointed with a power of attorney for the customer’s affairs. At the time, the customer was approximately 100 years old and was not a family member of Nelson. Nelson’s member firm prohibited registered representatives from serving in a fiduciary capacity, such as acting as a trustee or having power of attorney, unless the individual for whom the registered representative is acting as a fiduciary is a family member. The suspension is in effect from April 6, 2015, through October 5, 2015. See, FINRA Case #2014040364901.
