FINRA Reportedly Bars Broker Mayur Dalal in connection with Alleged Outside Business Activities
According to public records, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has barred financial advisor Mayur T. Dalal (CRD #1853077) from the securities industry this week. Dalal reportedly refused to provide testimony in FINRA’s investigation regarding his alleged dismissal from his member firm, Kestra Investment Services.
Mayur Dalal’s broker report indicates that he was registered with Kestra Investment Services in New Hyde Park, NY from June 2016 until February 2020 when he was discharged for allegations that he failed to follow the firm’s policy related to the disclosure of outside business activities and private securities transactions.
According to his broker profile, Dalal’s outside business activities include Muni Seva Charitable Foundation USA, Inc.
Dalal reportedly has one complaint filed against him in 2017 that was withdrawn, according to his broker profile. Client alleged “he was not properly informed of the fees and charges associated with the variable annuity he purchased in 2013.”
For FINRA’s full findings, see FINRA case number NO. 2020065664201.
