September 17, Chicago—NFA has ordered Chicago, Ill. introducing broker Global Asset Advisors LLC and its principal and associated person Glenn A. Swanson to jointly pay a $200,000 fine. NFA also ordered Global Asset Advisors' principal and associated person Kenneth S. Packard to pay a $35,000 fine.
The Decision, issued by NFA's Business Conduct Committee (BCC), is based on a Complaint issued by the BCC, and a settlement offer submitted by Global Asset Advisors, Swanson and Packard.
