FINRA Investigation

This followed allegations that he violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010 in that he failed to provide information and documents.  His alleged conduct is a violation of FINRA Rule 8210.

FINRA Rule 8210 requires that FINRA brokers provide information under oath if requested, regarding any matter that pertains to an investigation, complaint, examination, or proceeding.

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.”
