According to a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Hancock Investment Services was censured and fined $100,000. The firm allegedly failed to preserve business-related emails in a manner that complied with applicable federal securities laws and with FINRA rules, and until February 2012 failed to establish and maintain written supervisory procedures reasonably designed to ensure such compliance. This occurred from October 2003 until September 2016. If you or someone you know invested money with Hancock Investment Services, you may be able to recover your losses in the FINRA arbitration forum on a contingency fee basis.
