Lorenzo Esteva Barred by FINRA from Associating with any FINRA Member Firm
Lorenzo C. Esteva, on July 25, 2017, allegedly received a letter from FINRA requesting that he hand over brokerage and bank account statements, information about customer disputes, and other documents relevant to FINRA’s investigation into allegations of his misconduct, according to the aforementioned AWC presently under review by attorneys Jason Kane and James Booker.
Esteva was then allegedly warned by FINRA that his purported failure to provide FINRA with the aforementioned documentation and information as requested could result in his potential bar, the AWC notes.
FINRA then allegedly granted Esteva an extension of time to cooperate, as Esteva’s counsel allegedly reported to FINRA on August 22, 2017, that Esteva would allegedly not be providing the information and documentation as requested or otherwise participating in FINRA’s investigation, the AWC notes.
As a result, FINRA has rued that Esteva’s alleged conduct was violative of FINRA Rules, the AWC notes.
Esteva has also allegedly been named in a customer initiated investment related to a written complaint on June 20, 2017, in which the customer’s claim was supported by allegations that Esteva effected unauthorized loan transactions and falsified the customer’s signature and documentation, according to FINRA.
Finally one should also note that, according to the AWC, Lorenzo Esteva neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
