According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator has barred financial advisor John Santariello (CRD#: 5746158) from association with any FINRA member in all capacities after he reportedly failed to request termination of his suspension within three months of the date of the Notice of Suspension.
