Nicholas Kraiko Barred Following FINRA Requests for Information

Dec 1, 2021 Barred Broker

Nicholas Kraiko (CRD #: 5726415), a broker formerly registered with National Securities Corporation, was recently barred  for allegedly failing to respond to FINRA requests for information, according to his BrokerCheck Record, accessed on November 17, 2021.  Nicholas Kraiko’s alleged conduct is a violation of FINRA Rule 8210. 

FINRA Rule 8210 requires members to 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.” 

Sanctions 

Pursuant to FINRA Rule 9552 and in accordance with FINRA’s Notice of Suspension letter dated August 17 and September 7, 2021, Nicholas Kraiko was suspended on November 15, 2021, from associating with any FINRA member firm in all capacities. 

FINRA Rule 9552 applies in situations where a brokerage firm or representative has failed to provide information or keep information current. FINRA Rule 9552 is a Notice of Suspension if corrective action is not taken. Because Nicholas Kraiko failed to request termination of his suspension within three months of the date of the Notice of Suspension, he was automatically barred by FINRA. 

Investor Dispute  

On June 14, 2021, an investor alleged that Nicholas Kraiko misrepresented an investment. FINRA Rule 2020 states that brokers must “not induce the purchase or sale of any security by means of any manipulative, deceptive or other fraudulent device or contrivance.”  </>
