Show/Hide Answer

Option C : The supervisor is always accountable for the violations committed by those who report to him.

Under Standard III (E) – Responsibilities of Supervisors, members must take reasonable care to ensure that their subordinates do not violate any laws or the code of conduct. This includes designing effective procedures to deter fraudulent activity. If such procedures are reasonable, meet industry and regulatory standards, are compatible with the AIM code and are suitable for the firm in question, then the member cannot be held responsible for criminal activity clever enough to bypass the compliance system. Occurrence of such activity does indicate a need for a revamping of the system, though.

One of the discretionary accounts managed by Farnsworth is the Jones Corporation employee profit- sharing plan. Jones, the company president, recently asked Farnsworth to vote the shares in the profit- sharing plan in favor of the company-nominated slate of directors and against the directors sponsored by a dissident stockholder group. Farnsworth does not want to lose this account because he directs all the account’s trades to a brokerage firm that provides Farnsworth with useful information about tax-free investments. Although this information is not of value in managing the Jones Corporation account, it does help manage several other accounts. The brokerage firm providing this information also offers the lowest commissions for trades are best execution. Farnsworth investigates the directors’ issue, concludes that management’s slate is better for the long-performance of the firm than the dissident group’s slate and votes accordingly.
Farnsworth:

Option A: Did not violate the Standards in voting the share in the manner requested by Jones or in directing the trades to the brokerage firm.

Option B: Violated the Standards in directing the trades to the brokerage firm but not in voting the shares as requested by Jones.

Option C: Violated the Standard in voting the shares in the manner requested by Jones and in directing trades to the brokerage firm.

Option D: Violated the Standards in voting the shares in the manner requested by Jones but not in directing trades to the brokerage firm.

Show/Hide Answer

Option A : Did not violate the Standards in voting the share in the manner requested by Jones or in directing the trades to the brokerage firm.

This question pertains to Standard IV (B.1) Fiduciary Duties, in particular members’ responsibilities for voting proxies and the use of client brokerage. Because Farnsworth investigated the issue and concluded independently the best way to vote, he was not in violation of his fiduciary duties even though the company president asked him to vote the shares of the profit-sharing plan a certain way. Moreover because the brokerage firm provides the, lowest commissions and best executions, he has met his fiduciary duties to the client in using this brokerage firm. Since he’s not paying any extra money of the client for the information he’s receiving from the brokerage firm, it does not matter.
