HICKS SUBMITTED CLIENT SIGNED VARIABLE ANNUITY CONTRACTS TO THE HOME OFFICE FOR APPROVAL. THE CONTRACTS WERE FOR A HUSBAND AND WIFE - [CUSTOMERS]. DURING THE PRINCIPAL REVIEW PROCESS CANTELLA FOUND THAT THE APPLICATIONS CONTAINED SOME INCORRECT FEES. WE ASKED MR. HICKS TO INPUT THE CORRECTED FEES AND THEN HAVE THE CLIENTS INITIAL EACH CHANGE, THEREBY CONFIRMING THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROPER FEES. UPON RECEIPT OF THE INITIALED FORMS AND A SUBSEQUENT PHONE CALL TO THE CLIENTS IT WAS DETERMINED THAT MR. HICKS, NOT THE CLIENTS, HAD INITIALED THE FORMS. THIS WAS THEN RECONFIRMED DURING A PHONE CALL WITH MR. HICKS. HE EXPLAINED THAT THE CLIENTS WERE GOING OUT OF TOWN AND RATHER THAN WAIT FOR THEIR RETURN HE CALLED THEM, EXPLAINED THE CHANGES AND RECEIVED VERBAL AUTHORIZATION TO INITIAL THE CHANGES. THE CLIENTS HAVE SINCE SIGNED NEW PAPERWORK WITH THE PROPER FEES AND SIGNED A LETTER CONFIRMING THAT THE CHANGES TO THE FEES WERE FULLY EXPLAINED AND THAT THEY HAD GIVEN MR. HICKS THE AUTHORIZATION TO INITIAL ON THEIR BEHALF. WHILE CANTELLA DOES NOT CONDONE MR. HICKS' BEHAVIOR WE DO NOT FEEL THAT IT WAS DONE IN A MALICIOUS MANNER OR WITH ANY INTENT TO HARM THE CLIENTS; RATHER, HE SHOWED POOR JUDGEMENT. Broker Comment: I CALLED CLIENTS (SCOTT), ASKED FOR THEIR INITIALS ON CORRECTED FORMS. MRS. SCOTT ASKED ME TO INITIAL AS THEY WERE LEAVING TOWN. I WRONGLY APPLIED THEIR INITIALS.
