Kyle Harrington, of San Diego, California, Barred from Securities Industry
Have you lost money with financial advisor Kyle Harrington of San Diego, California? We are continuing our investigation into allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Kyle Harrington. FINRA brought a claim against Harrington, making several allegations.
FINRA alleged that in August 2012, while he was registered with National Securities Corp., Harrington converted or stole $20,000 from one of his customers by wiring the money to his personal checking account. Harrington also had his assistant, Linda Milberger, alter wire request forms in an attempt to conceal this conduct. Moreover, in 2012 and 2013, Kyle Harrington sold over 300,000 shares of restricted stock in Islet Sciences, Inc. to at least two individuals, without receiving permission from National Securities Corp.
In November 2018, FINRA barred Kyle Harrington from the securities industry regarding these allegations. He was also ordered to pay $276,000 in disgorgement to FINRA and National Securities Corp.
Kyle P. Harrington was a financial advisor and registered representative of National Securities Corp. from July 2012 to November 2016. He was also affiliated with Aurora Capital from December 2016 to July 2018. He worked at a branch office in San Diego, California.
According to BrokerCheck, Kyle Harrington has been the subject of at least 9 customer complaints, some of which make allegations regarding the sales of penny stocks (including Fantex) while he was with National Securities Corp. He was fired by National Securities Corp., and he was also previously fired by another brokerage firm in 2011. Harrington runs and operates Harrington Capital Management. Harrington also was the subject of a prior FINRA investigation after he failed to disclose a personal bankruptcy.
Brokerage firms like National Securities Corp. have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm. Brokerage firms also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations, as well as internal firm policies. When brokerage firms fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
