Financial Advisor Donald Padilla, LPL Financial in Alhambra, CA
Donald Padilla Reportedly Suspended from the Securities Industry
According to public records on the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) website, the regulator reportedly suspended Donald Padilla on June 2, 2020, from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. From February 2011 to November 2015, while associated with LPL Financial , Padilla allegedly set up and used unapproved email accounts to purportedly correspond with Firm customers about securities business and allegedly circumvented LPL’s supervision of his business in violation of FINRA Rules.
According to his broker profile, Padilla was also suspended in January 2020 due to failure to “comply with an arbitration award or settlement agreement or to satisfactorily respond to a FINRA request to provide information concerning the status of compliance.”
Padilla was reportedly registered with LPL Financial in Alhambra, CA from 2009 until 2015 when he was reportedly dismissed. He was then reportedly affiliated with Kestra Investment Services for three years until 2018, when he was also allegedly dismissed for “Failure to follow firm policy, specifically in relation to correspondence requirements and marketing designations.”
