UPDATE! Julian Piekarczyk of Pruco is Now BARRED – Joliet, IL
Julian Piekarczyk, formerly with Pruco Securities, Now Barred by FINRA
Have you lost money with financial advisor Julian Piekarczyk from Joliet, Illinois? We are continuing to look into allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Julian J. Piekarczyk. FINRA filed a complaint against Piekarczyk regarding allegations while he was affiliated with Pruco Securities. FINRA named Piekarczyk in a regulatory complaint in June 2020, and now he has been barred.
Piekarczyk was being investigated regarding allegations that he had his wife named as a beneficiary of a customer’s investment products, and he also had his wife named as a joint account holder of the customer’s bank account. Pruco Securities prohibited this conduct, after Piekarczyk initially told Pruco that he was going to be the beneficiary. After the customer died, Piekarczyk and his wife received $146,000 from the deceased’s products and bank account.
Julian Piekarczyk was a registered representative and financial advisor with Pruco Securities from 1991 to July 2018. He worked out of a branch office in Joliet, Illinois. Piekarczyk has also been the subject of at least one customer complaint.
Broker-dealers like Pruco Securities have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm, including investments sold by their registered representatives.
