Did Julian Jay Piekarczyk Cause You Investment Losses?
An Office of Hearing Officers decision became final in which Julian Jay Piekarczyk of Joliet, Illinois was barred from association from any FINRA member in all capacities. The sanction was based on findings that he allegedly violated his firms policies which is in violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
In May 1978, Julian Jay Piekarczyk joined Pruco Securities LLC (Pruco) and was registered as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5) in August 2018, disclosing that Piekarczyk had been terminated due to alleged misconduct. According to the FINRA findings, Piekarczyk allegedly induced a customer to make his wife beneficiary of financial products bought and personally maintained joint control of the customers bank account without approval from his firm. The findings state that Piekarczyk notified his firm that the customer intended to make him beneficiary of his life insurance policy, however, he was not family so Pruco denied the request for approval and Piekarczyk’s wife was made beneficiary instead. The FINRA findings also state that Piekarczyk allegedly recommended the customer open and deposit $76,977 into an interest-bearing joint bank account with a right of survivorship. Additionally, once the customer died, Piekarczyk withdrew $69,512 from the account and deposited them into his personal account and his wife received checks totaling $76,540 as beneficiary for the financial products. Although Julian Jay Piekarczyk is no longer registered or associated with a FINRA member, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction and sanctions.
FINRA Rule 2010 provides that “[a] member, in the conduct of its business, shall observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” FINRA Rule 2010 encompasses all unethical, business-related conduct, even if that conduct does not involve a security or a securities transaction. Conduct that reflects negatively on an associated person’s ability to comply with regulatory requirements fundamental to the securities industry is inconsistent with just and equitable principles of trade. A violation of an employer firm’s policies can violate just and equitable principles of trade.
