Lek Securities Accused of Enabling Manipulative Trading
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and most major US securities exchanges have permanently barred broker Samuel Lek, who is also the former CEO of Lek Securities. Meantime, the broker-dealer was fined $900K. The bars by the self-regulatory organization (FSRO), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the Nasdaq Stock Market, Cboe Global Markets, and their affiliate exchanges were part of 10 distinct settlements and come in the wake of allegations that Lek Securities gave foreign traders market access and that some of these traders proceeded to engage in manipulative trading and fraud. Lek and Lek Securities settled the charges but without denying or admitting to them.
