Criminal Activity(s) Reported – Christopher Fernan

This matter originated from a review of a customer complaint disclosed by Salomon
Whitney in the February 17, 2017 Form U5.

On September 9, 2020, as part of its investigation into this matter, FINRA staff sent a
request to Respondent for on-the-record testimony pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210. As
stated in his email to FINRA staff on October 7, 2020, and by this agreement,
Respondent acknowledges that he received FINRA’s request and will not appear for onthe-record testimony at any time.

FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states, in relevant part, that FINRA may require any “person
associated with a member, or any other person subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction … to
testify at a location specified by FINRA staff … with respect to any matter involved in
the investigation.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule
2010, which requires associated persons, in the conduct of their business, to “observe
high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” By
refusing to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested pursuant to FINRA Rule
8210, Respondent violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.

Penalty For The Terrible Crimes

Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Accordingly, he may not be associated with any
FINRA member in any capacity, including clerical or ministerial functions, during the
period of the bar or suspension. See FINRA Rules 8310 and 8311.
