Paul Trimber, Wells Fargo Advisor, Allegedly Converted Senior Customer’s Funds 

According to public records, FINRA, the broker-dealer regulator, has barred former Wells Fargo financial advisor Paul Trimber (CRD#: 2765260) from the securities industry. 

On February 29, 2024, Wells Fargo filed a Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) disclosing that Trimber had been discharged after he admitted to making unauthorized transfers of client funds to recipients outside the firm.  

Without admitting or denying the findings, Trimber reportedly refused to provide documents and information requested by FINRA in connection with its investigation into whether he converted a senior customer’s funds for his personal use and benefit. 

According to FINRA, Trimber reportedly refused to provide information in its investigation, leading to the bar. 

 FINRA Rule 2150 prohibits any member or person associated with a member from making improper use of a customer’s securities or funds. It also prohibits any guarantee against a customer’s loss or sharing in a customer’s account.
