Did Jonathan H. Dudley Cause You Investment Losses?

Jonathan H. Dudley of Stone Mountain, Georgia submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which he was permanently barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) from working in the securities industry because he failed to comply with FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.

In April 2018, Jonathan H. Dudley joined Centaurus and became registered as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing that he was permitted to resign due to alleged misconduct. According to the findings, FINRA began an investigation and sent a request to Dudley for information and documents or to appear for an on-the-record testimony regarding allegations from a former customer. The findings state that Dudley allegedly converted funds from a customer to use for an outside business venture he had not disclosed to his firm. The findings further state that Dudley responded to FINRA through email stating that he received, acknowledged, and refused to provide the requested documents and information or to appear for an on-the-record testimony. Although Jonathan H. Dudley is no longer associated with any FINRA member firm, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.

A failure to comply with a request for documents and information issued pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210 is a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” Rule 8210 requires persons subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction to provide information to FINRA upon request. Rule 8210(a)(1) authorizes FINRA, in the course of an investigation, to require persons subject to its jurisdiction to “provide information orally, in writing, or electronically and to testify at a location specified by FINRA staff, under oath or affirmation administered by a court reporter or a notary public if requested, with respect to any matter involved in the investigation.” Rule 8210(a)(2) authorizes FINRA to “inspect and copy the books, records, and accounts” of persons subject to its jurisdiction “with respect to any matter involved in the investigation that is in such person’s possession, custody, or control.” Rule 8210(c) provides that “[n]o member or person shall fail to provide information or testimony or to permit an inspection and copying of books, records, or accounts pursuant to this Rule.”
