The Journal of Finance, 73(3), 1417-1450. doi:10.1111/jofi.12613||Series/Report no.:||The Journal of Finance||Abstract:||Using a novel data set of U.S. fi nancial advisors that includes individuals' employment histories and misconduct records, we show that co-workers influence an individual's propensity to commit financial misconduct. We identify co-workers' effect on misconduct using changes in co-workers caused by mergers of financial advisory firms. The tests include merger-fi rm fixed effects to exploit the variation in changes to co-workers across branches of the same fi rm. The probability of an advisor committing misconduct increases if his new co-workers, encountered in the merger, have a history of misconduct. This effect is stronger between demographically similar co-workers.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/102643
