Public records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and accessed on January 29, 2019 indicate that former California-based JW Cole Financial broker/adviser Edward Conrekas was recently sanctioned by FINRA in connection to alleged rule violations and suspended from acting as a broker. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Conrekas (CRD# 2962132).
Edward Conrekas has spent 20 years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with JW Cole Financial in Eastvale, California (2018). Previous registrations include Morgan Stanley in Pasadena, California (2009-2017); Citigroup Global Markets in Whittier, California (2005-2009); and Morgan Stanley DW in Purchase, New York (1997-2005). He has passed three securities industry examinations: Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination), which he obtained on November 21, 1997; SIE (Securities Industry Essentials Examination), which he obtained on October 1, 2018; and Series 7 (General Securities Representative Examination), which he obtained on November 13, 1997. He is currently not registered with any state or firm.
According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one FINRA sanction and was discharged from his former employer in connection to alleged rule violations.
In December 2018 FINRA sanctioned him in connection to allegations he failed to respond to a request for information. He was suspended until such a time that he provides the information or the suspension converts into a bar.
In August 2018 he was named in a FINRA investigation into his discharge from Morgan Stanley.
In 2017 he was terminated from his position at Morgan Stanley in connection to allegations he failed to comply with the terms of a revenue sharing agreement with a retired firm representative when he failed to use a joint production number for revenue allocation.
