I am writing to express my deep concerns about FINRA`s proposal to revise Forms U4 and U5. This proposal will undermine my efforts to build a successful business by allowing my reputation to be harmed by unproven allegations contained in an arbitration or civil litigation claim in which I am not even a named party.
For someone in any field of endeavor to have his or her reputation sullied by hearsay, possibly even gossip, is not only unprofessional, but down right un-American. In fact, it is a shame that something like this would even be devised.
Therefore, I request that you reject FINRA`s proposal to add Questions 14I(4) and (5) to Form U4 and Questions 7E(4) and (5) to Form U5. Thank you for considering my comments.
