According to a recent FINRA Disciplinary Action, Derek Neal York (CRD #5798549, Pelham, Alabama) submitted an AWC in which he was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.
Without admitting or denying the findings, York consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he participated in private securities transactions and failed to provide prior written notice of his participation in the transactions to his member firms. The findings stated that York engaged in an outside business activity, as the owner of a business and its sole employee, without disclosing and providing prior written notice to his firms.
For the full case information, see FINRA Case #2014039815901.
According to his FINRA Broker Check Report, York was registered with Edward Jones, Metlife Securities and LPL Financial during his time in the industry. His broker report also indicates that at least one state regulator was investigating him for his involvement in an investment called Multi-Family Real Return IV.
