FINRA'S findings state that Deutsche Bank terminated Sreetharan (CRD #5939838) in 2016 for "loss of confidence," noting that the firm had placed Sreetharan under review for "...for fraud or wrongful taking of property, or violating investment-related statutes, regulations, rules or industry standards of conduct."
