Gevorg Daldumyan was recently barred from the financial industry by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) over allegations that he failed to appear for testimony concerning condominium cooperative investments.
Daldumyan was registered with World Group Securities, Inc. (WGS) from 2002 through January 2012. Thereafter, Daldumyan was associated with Transamerica Financial Advisors, Inc. (Transamerica) or its predecessor. On June 19, 2012, Transamerica filed a Form U5 with FINRA stating that Daldumyan had voluntarily resigned on May 21, 2012, during an internal review by the firm arising from “information that the registered representative made investments in a condominium cooperative in Arnienia which appear not to have been disclosed to the firm.” Daldumyan is no longer associated with any FINRA member.
Due to the U5 Form filing, FINRA sent requests to Daldumyan for more information concerning the outside investments. By letter dated May 20, 2013, FlNRA staff requested that Daldumyan appear for on-the-record testimony. In response to the letter, Daldumyan stated that he would not appear for testimony at any time. Consequently, Daldumyan violated FINRA Rule 8210 by refusing to appear and provide testimony and was barred from association with any FINRA member firm.
