Amy O’Brien Barred After Allegedly Failing to Cooperate with FINRA Investigation

Feb 22, 2022 FINRA Investigation

Amy O’Brien (CRD #: 5765481), a broker formerly registered with LPL Financial, has been barred by FINRA, according to her BrokerCheck record, accessed on February 10, 2022. 

This bar stems from allegations that Amy O’Brien refused to provide documents and information requested by FINRA in connection with its investigation into her potential improper receipt of funds from an elderly customer. This matter originated from an anonymous tip submitted via FINRA’s website. 

By refusing to produce the documents and information requested pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, Amy O’Brien violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.

FINRA Rule 8210 requires that registered brokers supply FINRA staff with all information and documents requested in the course of an investigation. A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires member firms and their associated persons to "observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade."
