Brokers Howard Allen (Allen), Joseph McGowan (McGowan), and Peter Pak (Pak) have settled charges brought by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) concerning allegations that the brokers, while employed by J.P. Turner & Company, L.L.C. (JP Turner) and Portfolio Advisors Alliance, Inc. (PAA), participated in 12 private securities transactions without providing prior written notice to their firms in violation of NASD Conduct Rules 3040 and 2110 and FINRA Rule 2010.

The brokers were associated with the same firms at approximately the same times.  The brokers were associated with JP Turner from 2002 until 2008.  Thereafter, the brokers were associated with Allen Partners from May 2008 until June 2009.  Finally, since 2009 the brokers have been associated with PAA.  Pak has not been registered since 2011.  Both Allen and McGowan are currently registered with PAA.

According to FINRA the three brokers owned and controlled two companies – Allen Partners Capital, LLC (APC) and Allen Partners, LLC (AP).  Allen was a managing member of both companies.  While at JP Turner and PAA, Allen conducted his branch office operations through AP.  FINRA found that while the brokers were associated with JP Turner and PAA they raised money for both APC and AP.
