Advisor Roderick Whited, Northwestern Mutual, Allegedly Misappropriated Funds
The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) reportedly announced this week public sanctions against several representatives including reportedly Roderick L. Whited, of Gainesville, FL. In July 2022, CFP Board barred Whited from the CFP® certification marks after he allegedly failed to comply with CFP Board’s Interim Suspension Order. CFP Board was reportedly investigating Whited after the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) reportedly barred him from associating with any FINRA member at any time on November 15, 2021.
Whited allegedly converted $44,170 in charitable donations from a pediatric cancer charity to purportedly pay for his own personal expenses, according to FINRA’s findings. According to his BrokerCheck profile, Whited reportedly has six disclosure events on his record including two employment separations, 1 customer complaint, 2 judgement/liens and the bar.
Whited was reportedly affiliated with the following broker dealers and investment advisors, among others:
B, 10/06/2020 – 11/15/2021, INTERCAROLINA FINANCIAL SERVICES, INC. (CRD#:19475), GAINSVILLE, FL
B, 04/17/1996 – 02/06/2020, NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL INVESTMENT SERVICES, LLC (CRD#:2881), Gainesville, FL
The CFP Board’s administrative permanent bar was effective as of August 16, 2022.
