According to BrokerCheck records kept by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) advisor Robert Jamison (Jamison), formerly associated with PNC Investments, in December 2018, was sanctioned and barred from the securities industry by FINRA over accusations of potentially selling unapproved products.
In December 2018 FINRA alleged that Jamison consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he refused to provide testimony to FINRA related to allegations that he, in connection with private securities transactions, referred customers to an individual who was not registered and who may have recommended or sold unsuitable securities to those customers.
The providing of loans or selling of notes and other investments outside of a brokerage firm constitutes impermissible private securities transactions – a practice known in the industry as “selling away”.
At this time it is unclear the nature and scope of Jamison’s activities. Jamison’s disclosures include any outside business activities (OBAs) disclosures. The only disclosure is an involvement with Crump Life Insurance.
