FINRA’s Department of Enforcement initiated an investigation into Savoie’s alleged misconduct. Specifically, FINRA investigated whether Savoie converted approximately $665,000 in funds from one of his customer’s account(s). In connection with this investigation, FINRA sent Savoie a request for documents and information pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210. According to FINRA, Savoie acknowledged receipt of FINRA’s Rule 8210 requests; yet he failed to cooperate with FINRA’s investigation.
Based upon the foregoing alleged misconduct, FINRA asserted Savoie violated FINRA Rules 2010 and 8210. Specifically, FINRA Rule 8210 authorizes FINRA, in the course of its investigations, to require persons associated with a FINRA member to “provide information orally, in writing, or electronically . . . with respect to any matter involved in the investigation...” Here, Savoie failed to provide testimony in response to FINRA’s request, thereby violating FINRA Rule 8210.
