Lawrence Roberson, Former Wealth Management Group Advisor, Barred from Securities Industry for Converting Client Funds

By September 12, 2016 September 20th, 2017 News

According to his Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (“AWC”) with FINRA, Lawrence Roberson was permanently barred from the securities industry for recommending and selling a nonexistent bond debenture to a client.  Instead he converted the client’s funds to personal use in July of 2015.  At the time, Roberson was an advisor for Wealth Management Group, Inc. and was a broker for Capital City Securities, LLC.  He agreed to a permanent ban in AWC 2016050182001.

His FINRA Broker Check report shows two other regulatory events initiated by the State of Michigan prior to his barring from the securities industry.
