FINRA Reportedly Bars Farid Morim, Former JP Morgan Financial Advisor
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on February 23, the regulator has barred financial advisor Farid Morim (CRD #5023477, Los Angeles, California) from the securities industry.
FINRA announced in the April 2018 Disciplinary Report that an OHO decision became final in which Morim was reportedly barred from association with any FINRA member in all capacities. The sanction was based on the findings that Morim allegedly failed to produce information and documents requested by FINRA during the course of an investigation.
According to the announcement, FINRA was allegedly investigating the possibility of potential conversion of customer assets and undisclosed outside business activities while Morim was associated with his member firm, JP Morgan.
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Morim was registered with JP Morgan in Beverly Hills, CA from October 2012 until he left the firm in October 2015. Morim has six disclosure events listed on his broker check report.
For FINRA’s full findings see FINRA Case #2015047528202.
