Jae Hun Kim Barred after Customer Complaints

According to a letter of acceptance, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has barred former E1 Asset Management broker Jae Hun Kim (CRD#: 4620963) from associating with any FINRA member at any time.

According to FINRA, the securities regulator, on March 4, 2024, E1 Asset Management filed a Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) stating that it had terminated Kim’s registrations through the firm.

On February 26, 2024, in connection with its investigation into a customer arbitration, FINRA sent a letter to Kim requesting the production of information and documents pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210.

According to FINRA, Kim reportedly refused to provide information in its investigation, leading to the bar.

FINRA Rules for Brokers

According to FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1), individuals and entities under FINRA’s jurisdiction must provide information concerning any matter relevant to a FINRA investigation or examination.

Additionally, FINRA Rule 8210(c) mandates that no member or individual shall refuse to provide information or allow inspection and copying of books, records, or accounts as required by this rule.

Violating FINRA Rule 8210 also constitutes a breach of FINRA Rule 2010, which mandates individuals associated with a FINRA member to uphold high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in their business dealings.
