FINRA Investigates Abdul Rahmani for Allegations of Outside Business Activities
According to public records, financial advisor Abdul Rahmani was named a respondent in a FINRA complaint on April 15, 2021, alleging that he engaged in outside business activities (OBAs) without providing prior written notice to his member firm, Joseph Stone Capital L.L.C.
The complaint alleges that the entity, which also operated under another name, advertised its business as marketing and selling shares of pre-initial public offering (IPO) companies to investors.
According to FINRA, Rahmani allegedly solicited and met with prospective clients of the entity, which operated from the same office where he conducted his securities business.
The complaint also alleges that Rahmani provided “false or misleading information” to FINRA in response to a written request for information in connection with its investigation of his undisclosed OBAs.
Although FINRA requested that Rahmani identify all email addresses he used, as well as all bank accounts he controlled, he purportedly failed to disclose an email address that he used with a domain name from the entity’s other name. Rahmani also allegedly failed to disclose the existence of bank accounts that were opened at approximately the same time the entity was formed.
The complaint further alleges that Rahmani provided false or misleading information to FINRA during on-the-record testimony.
According to FINRA, Rahmani allegedly falsely testified that he had no involvement with the entity, that he purportedly never used an email address associated with the entity, and that he allegedly had closed multiple bank accounts that he initially failed to disclose to FINRA.
According to his FINRA broker profile, Rahmani was reportedly affiliated with nine different firms during his eighteen years working in the securities industry. He allegedly has 3 employment separations, 3 judgement/liens and 1 customer complaint on his broker report, in addition to the regulatory actions.
