The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms. FINRA requires brokers and brokerage firms to report customer complaints and disputes as well as regulatory sanctions. In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.
In 1/2023 without admitting or denying the findings, Byrne consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he refused to appear for the on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA in connection with its investigation into the suitability of certain trades recommended by him. As a result of these findings, Byrne was permanently barred from FINRA in all capacities.
