Did RJJ Pasadena Securities Cause You Investment Losses? RJJ Pasadena Securities submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which the firm was censured, fined $5,000 and required to revise its WSP’s. The sanctions were based on findings that the firm allegedly failed to supervise one of their representatives in violation of NASD Rules 1021 and 1022 and FINRA Rules 1220, 3110, 2360, and 2010. Since 1980, RJJ Pasadena Securities has been a FINRA member firm and employs 5 registered representatives in Las Vegas, Nevada and South Pasadena, California. According to the FINRA findings, the firm had allegedly committed three supervisory violations by failing to enforce its own written supervisory procedures (WSP’s). The findings state that RJJ Pasadena violated its registration rules and allegedly allowed a registered representative to conduct their  own business without supervision by a properly registered principal. FINRA Rule 1220(a)(8)(A) and its predecessor, NASD Rule 1022(0, require every firm that engages in options transactions with the public to have at least one registered options principal. Those rules further require any person engaged in the supervision of options sales practices to be registered as an options principal. FINRA Rule 2360(b)(20)(A) requires that “[e]ach member that conducts a public customer options business shall ensure that its written supervisory system policies and procedures pursuant to Rules 3110, 3120 and 3130 adequately address the member’s public customer options business. NASD Rule 1021(d)(1) was in effect until October 1, 2018.3 The rule allowed a registered representative “whose duties [were] changed by the member so as to require registration in any principal classification” a period of 90 calendar days following the change in his or her duties to pass the appropriate qualification examination. The rule prohibited a representative from functioning in the principal classification beyond the initial 90 calendar-day period without having passed the appropriate qualification examination.
