The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Inc. (FINRA) has barred former J.P. Morgan rep and securities broker Ricardo Rodriguez-Stern from the securities industry. The regulator was investigating customer complaints against Rodriguez-Stern, who failed to appear at a hearing.
Ricardo Rodriguez-Stern Investigated by FINRA
J.P. Morgan terminated Rodriguez-Stern in January 2016 for improper account access. According to a report filed by FINRA, Rodriguez-Stern accessed a client’s account to contact them for personal reasons.
After the termination, FINRA opened an investigation into Rodriguez-Stern’s activities. The broker allegedly failed to disclose 10 unsatisfied tax liens and several civil judgments filed between 2006 and 2013. FINRA’s enforcement department also planned to investigate the circumstances surrounding 12 customer complaints against the broker.
