On November 7, 2012, FINRA’s Department of Enforcement initiated a Disciplinary Proceeding against Todd Lloyd Goedeke for allegedly misappropriating a customer’s funds and failing to respond to FINRA’s requests for information with respect to the referenced investigation. Mr. Goedeke entered the securities industry in 1983 and joined Cantella & Co., Inc. in 2004. He remained with Cantella until his termination on June 18, 2010.
According to the Complaint, on September 14, 2009, at Mr. Goedeke’s directions, one of his customers gave him a check in the amount of $4,800 payable to an entity controlled by Mr. Goedeke. Later the same day, Mr. Goedeke deposited the funds into one of his accounts. In March 2011, the customer accepted a settlement with Cantella in the amount of $4,825. FINRA Enforcement made several attempts to contact Mr. Goedeke for an explanation and requested information in reference to this investigation. As of the date of this Complaint, Mr. Goedeke had not responded to FINRA Enforcement’s requests.
