Broker-dealer Fined $1,000 for Unregistered Branch Office Activity

On November 5, 2002, the Commissioner entered into a Stipulation and Agreement with Triad Advisors, Inc., a Connecticut-registered broker-dealer having its principal office at 3500 Parkway Lane, Suite 220, Norcross, Georgia. The Stipulation and Agreement claimed that, from approximately August 2001 forward, the firm transacted business from One Bradley Road, Suite 902, Woodbridge, Connecticut, prior to that location being registered as a branch office under the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act.

Pursuant to the Stipulation and Agreement, the firm agreed to pay a $1,000 fine to the agency and to implement revised supervisory and compliance procedures designed to prevent and detect violations of Connecticut branch office registration requirements.
