Ricardo Rodriguez-Stern Barred for failure to provide information 

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator has allegedly barred Ricardo Rodriguez-Stern from working in the financial industry. In October 2017, Rodriguez- Stern was reportedly named a respondent in a FINRA complaint alleging that he has failed to provide FINRA requested documents and information related to an investigation into his potential misconduct regarding his failure to timely disclose via amended Form U4 ten unsatisfied tax liens and civil judgments filed between 2006 and 2013.

Additionally, the complaint alleges that FINRA also sought to investigate the circumstances behind twelve alleged customer complaints that had been lodged against Rodriguez-Stern.

According to his BrokerCheck Report, Rodriguez-Stern was registered with JP Morgan Securities in New York, NY from October 2012 until January 2016. He has 5 disclosures listed on his broker report including a bankruptcy filing in 2012.
