FINRA reportedly bars Gary Basralian for failure to provide information during an investigation.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator has allegedly barred Gary Basralian of Maplewood, NJ from the securities industry.

On January 2, 2018, in connection with an investigation into, among other things, the circumstances of Basralian’s resignation from Royal Alliance Associates, FINRA staff purportedly sent a request to Basralian for documents and information.

By failing to provide documents and information as requested, Basralian was reportedly barred from the securities industry, pursuant to FINRA rules.

According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Basralian was registered with Royal Alliance Associates in Maplewood, NJ from January 1989 until he was permitted to resign in December 2017 due to a customer complaint alleging that Basralian “invested a substantial portion of (the clients) funds in a number of suspect investments,” that the advisor has failed to disclose tax liens, and that he “misappropriated monies that belonged to the client.”

There is one pending complaint listed on Basralian’s broker report from December 2017 alleging fraud and breach of contract related to outside investments.

For FINRA’s full findings see FINRA case NO. 2017056769401.
