Steven Robert Aron Barred for Failure to Disclose Information Related to Outside Business Activities

FINRA barred former Financial West Group broker Steven Robert Aron of Agoura Hills, California after allegedly soliciting investments for private securities while failing to notify his employing firm of this outside business activity

FINRA Case #2011028382801

According to the findings, Aron facilitated the investments from several customers at Financial West and an additional customer of his certified public accounting business.

The investigation states that Aron's customers contributed a total of $325,000 towards an investment in a local pawn and jewelry business, conducted through Aron's personal business known as "Pacific Investments." The customers who invested with Aron's Pacific Investments allegedly contributed their money with the expectation of a 9% return on the investment.

FINRA charged Aron with failing to notify employer Financial West of the Pacific Investments outside business activity as well as the existence of another Aron entity, "Canwood Investments."

Following the discovery of Aron's unreported outside business activities, Financial West allowed Aron to resign.

After Aron complied with FINRA's first, but not second request for further information, he was banished from the securities industry, less than 10 years after first becoming registered.
