FINRA Bars Robert Lee Golding after Allegations of Forgery
According to public records, on November 27, 2023, FINRA, the self-regulator that oversees brokers and brokerage firms, has reportedly barred financial advisor Robert Golding (CRD#: 5324763) from associating with any FINRA member at any time.
On September 12, 2022, Pruco Securities reportedly filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5) disclosing that Golding voluntarily resigned after allegations that he “electronically submitted non-genuine client signatures on two annuity applications, misdated a company form, and communicated via text outside the Company’s monitoring platform.”
Golding reportedly refused to produce information and documents requested by FINRA and consequently was barred from the securities industry.
FINRA Rule 8210(c) requires registered representatives to provide “information or testimony . . . pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in the conduct of their business.”
