Broker Alex Herrera Is Barred By FINRA, Involved In Investor Disputes
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) reports troubling information in regard to securities broker Alex Gerardo Herrera (CRD#: 3204779, Coral Gables, Florida). Notably, FINRA BrokerCheck confirms that at least three investors filed disputes alleging sales practice violations by the securities broker, who worked for UBS Financial Services from 2012 to 2018. Moreover, there are three instances in which regulators sanctioned Herrera. Here’s more on these disclosures.
FINRA’s Disciplinary Actions Against Alex Herrera Include A Bar From The Securities Industry
Evidently, FINRA issued Alex Herrera a suspension as securities broker. This sanction is for him failing to pay an Arbitration Award. The suspension went into effect on August 21, 2020.
More importantly, the financial industry watchdog barred Alex Herrera indefinitely in August of 2018. Namely, Herrera was under investigation at that time for selling away activities and outside business activities. FINRA told the broker to disclose information so that it could review these allegations. Herrera’s lawyer told FINRA that Herrera would not comply. For this reason, Herrera can no longer be a securities broker for any FINRA firm effective August 8, 2018.
