According to his BrokerCheck report, Robert Wasserman has been sanctioned by FINRA.

In April 2017 FINRA sanctioned him following allegations he “as a research analyst at his member firm, he was personally prohibited under NASD Rule 2711(c)(4) from participating in efforts to solicit investment banking business, however Wasserman participated in the solicitation of investment banking business by appearing in a publicly available video, and making statements on the video promoting the firm’s investment banking business.” FINRA’s findings stated further: “Wasserman improperly issued research reports that lacked certain disclosures required by FINRA Rules. Specifically, Wasserman issued reports on behalf of the firm that improperly used conditional language in making disclosures of the firm’s and its employees’ ownership of subject company securities. The reports used certain ratings without defining them, and also did not conform to the requirements with respect to disclosure of the distribution of ratings on covered subject companies.” He was issued a 15-day suspension and a fine of $10,000.
