Ryan Tarjanyi Report
In 2019, FINRA opened an examination of Tarjanyi’s sales practices. At that time,
Bankers Life Securities had reported that customers complained about Tarjanyi, alleging, among other things, forgery and falsification of information on an insurance application and annuity withdrawal forms.
FINRA Rule 8210 requires member firms and associated persons to provide information and testimony to FINRA in the course of an examination or investigation. Under Rule
8210, FINRA staff has the right to require associated persons to testify under oath “with
respect to any matter involved in the investigation.” Inherent in that obligation to testify is the obligation to testify truthfully. FINRA Rule 2010 requires each FINRA member
and its associated persons to observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Providing false or misleading testimony to FINRA violates FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, and as part of its examination, FINRA staff took
Tarjanyi’s testimony, under oath, on February 20, 2020. During his on-the-record
testimony, Tarjanyi provided inaccurate information in response to questioning about a customer’s execution of an annuity partial withdrawal form.
Therefore, Tarjanyi violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.
