Merrill Lynch Wealth Management has temporarily put a hold on its adviser trainees’ abilities to contact potential new clients after outreach-related violations were noted, according to a report in Business Insider.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bank of America’s wealth manager trainees have been cut off from traditional ways of bringing in new business, such as in-person events and meetings, which have been eliminated.
The internal Merrill Lynch memo that was the basis of the Business Insider story did not outline what violations occurred or how many were recorded.
