Did Frank John Tarazon Cause You Investment Losses?

Frank John Tarazon, a former broker at Des Moines, Iowa based ING Financial Partners, Inc., submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) in which he agreed to the described penalties and to the entry of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) findings that he borrowed a total of $368,692 from an elderly customer contrary to his member firm’s policies and procedures, which barred registered representatives from borrowing money from customers, except from immediate family members. 

FINRA found that Mr. Tarazon never requested permission to borrow funds from the customer, and the firm was without knowledge of the customer’s loans to Mr. Tarazon.  FINRA’s findings also stated that Mr. Tarazon maintained or had a financial interest in brokerage accounts held outside his member firm and did not provide the firm with written notice of these accounts or receive the firm’s prior approval to open or hold an interest in the accounts.  Further, FINRA found that Mr. Tarazon was designated as a successor trustee to the customer’s trust and as a beneficiary to that trust.  Mr. Tarazon’s firm’s policies and procedures barred registered representatives from being named as a beneficiary on an account or from acting in the capacity of a guardianship, conservator, trustee, power of attorney, or any similar type of relationship on behalf of any unrelated person without the firm’s written approval.  This prohibition included acting as a beneficiary of a trust or estate.  According to FINRA, during his firm’s annual inspections, Mr. Tarazon falsely stated to his supervisor that he had no undisclosed outside brokerage accounts.  Mr. Tarazon also falsely stated on annual business questionnaires that he was not named as a trustee or beneficiary of a customer’s trust.  Mr. Tarazon of Oxnard, California was fined $20,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for six months.
