Mayur T. Dalal Report
FINRA Rule 8210 states, in relevant part, that FINRA has the right to require a “person
subject to FINRA’ s jurisdiction to provide information orally, in writing, or electronically
. . . with respect to any matter involved in the investigation, complaint, examination or
proceeding.” FINRA Rule 8210 also specifies that “[n]o person shall fail to provide
information or testimony . . . pursuant to this Rule.” A failure to provide information
and/or testimony requested by FINRA pursuant to Rule 8210 violates Rule 8210.
Conduct that violates FINRA Rule 8210 also violates FINRA Rule 2010, which requires
associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable
principals of trade.”
On February 24, 2020, the firm filed a Form U5, stating that Respondent had been
discharged on that date, because he “failed to follow the firm’s policy related to the
Disclosure of Outside Business Activities and Private Securities Transactions.”
On February 19, 2021, FINRA sent a request to Respondent, seeking on-the-record
testimony pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210 on March 5, 2021. As stated in his counsel’s
email to FINRA on February 22, 2021, and by this agreement, Respondent acknowledges
that he received FINRA’s request and will not appear for on-the-record testimony at any
time. By refusing to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested pursuant to FINRA
Rule 8210, Respondent violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.
Penalties, Punishments & Sanctions
