History Of Nedjeen Baptiste
Baptiste first became registered with FINRA as an Investment Company and Variable
Contracts Products Representative in May 2015. Baptiste was registered with FINRA in
that capacity through an association with J.P. Morgan Securities LLC (CRD No. 79) from
May 2015 to July 2020.
On July 14, 2020, J.P. Morgan filed a Uniform Termination Notice for Securities
Industry Registration (Form U5) stating that Baptiste’s registration was terminated
because her “position no longer requires registration.” On August 24, 2020, J.P. Morgan
filed an amended Form U5 disclosing that an internal review concerning Baptiste had
concluded that she “was participating in an unapproved outside business activity.”
Baptiste is not currently registered or associated with a FINRA member firm. However,
she remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction pursuant to Article V, Section 4 of FINRA’s
Nedjeen & Fraud Report
This matter originated from FINRA’s investigation concerning the amended Form U5
filed by J.P. Morgan.
FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states, in relevant part, that FINRA may require a person subject
to its jurisdiction “to provide information orally, in writing, or electronically … with
respect to any matter involved in [a FINRA] investigation [or] examination.” FINRA
Rule 8210(c) further states that “[n]o … person shall fail to provide information …
pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA
Rule 2010, which requires member firms and their associated persons to “observe high
standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”
On February 4, 2021, in connection with its investigation into Baptiste’s potential
participation in an unapproved outside business activity, FINRA sent a request to
Baptiste for the production of information and documents pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210.
As Baptiste’s attorney stated in an email to FINRA on February 18, 2021, and by this
agreement, Baptiste acknowledges that she received FINRA’s request and will not
produce the requested information or documents at any time. By refusing to produce the
information or documents as requested pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, Baptiste violated
FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.
