Broker Terminated By His Firm for Outside Business Activities
According to a recent FINRA disclosure, Vadim Lubarsky resigned from his firm, Commonwealth Financial Network, for failing to disclose an outside business activity and his associated involvement with the sale of promissory notes without approval by his brokerage firm.
In the securities industry, when a stockbroker like Vadim Lubarsky sells investments such as promissory notes which are not approved by the brokerage firm it is called “selling away”. Brokerage firm may be held liable for losses in those investments to their customers even if the investment itself was not approved. Moreover, because brokerage firms like Commonwealth have a regulatory duty to supervise their brokers, regulators routinely bring enforcement actions against not only the reps but increasingly also against the supervisors.
