The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) has suspended financial advisor Ricardo Turlan from the securities industry for two months. Mr. Turlan consented to the suspension after FINRA alleged that he engaged in discretionary trading without written authorization in two customer accounts between June 2017 and February 2019. Mr. Turlan also allegedly mismarked approximately 72 trades as “unsolicited” when the trades should have been marked as “solicited.” FINRA also fined Mr. Turlan $7,500.
The alleged conduct occurred while UBS Financial Services Inc. (“UBS”) employed Mr. Turlan in San Antonio, Texas. UBS discharged Mr. Turlan in July 2019, alleging misconduct related to a non-discretionary account and trading in accounts that reached levels that could be considered unsuitable.
