Harry James Poulos Barred by FINRA for Alleged Failure to Provide On-the-record Testimony Relating to Unapproved Outside Business Activities

Harry James Poulos has been barred by FINRA for failure to provide on-the-record testimony, during the course of an investigation into, among other things, the conduct described on his Form U5, according to the aforementioned AWC presently being reviewed by attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer.

Harry James Poulos, who was registered with Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation from December 2012 until Lincoln terminated his registration on August 28, 2014, received a letter from FINRA requesting that he appear for testimony on January 7, 2016, pursuant to FINRA Rules, the AWC notes.

Poulos’s counsel then allegedly contacted Enforcement staff to acknowledge that Poulos would not appear for testimony at any time, and Poulos did not appear for the scheduled testimony on January 7, 2016, and thus violated FINRA Rules, the AWC reports. One should also note that, according to the AWC, Harry James Poulos neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
