According to BrokerCheck records kept by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) former advisor Judith Bufis (Bufis), formerly associated with Kovack Securities Inc. (Kovack Securities) in East Brunswick, New Jersey has been accused by FINRA over private securities transactions.
In October 2018 Bufis consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that she failed to provide documents and information requested by FINRA in connection with potential private securities transactions. In so doing she accepted a bar from the securities industry.
At this time it is unclear the nature or scope of the alleged outside business activities (OBAs) and private securities transactions. Bufis public disclosures state that she engaged in the sale of insurance and annuities but discloses not other activities.
