Christopher Jorgensen’s member firm, Summit Brokerage Services, reportedly received a Customer Complaint alleging that Jorgenson directed a customer to not respond to a FINRA Inquiry, according to a recent Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (AWC) under review by attorney Alan Rosca.

Christopher Jorgensen Barred by FINRA for Allegedly Refusing to Respond to a FINRA Request for On-the-record Testimony

Christopher Jorgensen was purportedly a financial advisor and registered rep of Summit Brokerage Services from January 2012 to April 2017, and was allegedly terminated by Summit Brokerage Services regarding the aforementioned allegations, according to the aforementioned AWC currently under review by attorney Alan Rosca.

FINRA subsequently opened an investigation into Jorgensen’s alleged misconduct, the AWC notes.

On March 31, 2017, FINRA staff then allegedly sent a request to Jorgensen, through his counsel, for on-the-record testimony pursuant to FINRA Rules, and, as in his counsel’s email to FINRA staff on April 19, 2017 acknowledged that he had received FINRA’s request but that he would not appear for on-the-record testimony at any time, the AWC states.

Jorgensen, by refusing to appear for on-the-record testimony as requested pursuant to FINRA Rules, allegedly violated FINRA Rules, the AWC reports.

Jorgensen, based on the aforementioned behavior allegedly violated FINRA Rules and hence has been barred by FINRA from associating with any FINRA member firm in any capacity, the AWC notes.

One should also note that, according to the AWC, Jorgensen neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
