NASD announced that it has charged two Utah brokers, Jeffrey Doerr and David Corn, with facilitating a hedge fund manager's deceptive practices to market time through variable annuities offered by three different life insurance companies. Both Doerr and Corn were registered with Prudential Securities, Inc. (PSI) - now known as Prudential Equity Group - but have since left the firm. NASD also charged the brokers' branch manager, Darrel Trost, with failing to supervise their activities.
