Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses | Frank Bazan, Financial Advisor Suspended from Securities Industry
Frank Bazan was previously licensed with BBVA Securities, Inc. from 2013 to 2016. Frank Bazan consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that Frank Bazan failed to disclose that he was involved in an outside real estate business to his member firm.
ACCORDING TO FINRA: The findings stated that the following year, Bazan submitted a compliance attestation to the firm that inaccurately stated he had not engaged in any outside business activities in 2013. The findings also stated that Bazan borrowed $150,000 from a firm customer without providing prior notice to or obtaining approval from his firm. The day after Bazan deposited the customer's check into his personal bank account, the bank identified the transaction as suspicious and reversed the deposit. Although Bazan had access to the customer's funds for a short period of time, he did not make any withdrawals before the deposit was reversed. The day after the deposit was reversed, Bazan resigned from his firm. The firm's written policies and procedures prohibited loans with customers unless the customer was an immediate family member or a financial institution in the business of providing credit. The customer was neither.
