Former LPL broker Alfred Talens was permanently barred by FINRA for failing to respond to a request by FINRA for information. Talens was terminated by LPL for violating firm policy regarding participation in outside business activities and borrowing money from clients. Talens has a pending FINRA arbitration based on a customer complaint alleging unsuitability in connection with the investment in a variable annuity and alleging Talens was engaged in the sale of unregistered and unapproved securities while at LPL.
A broker at LPL Financial from September 2009 until February 2015, Talens previously was registered with New England Securities, Banc One Securities Corporation and IFMG Securities, Inc. in addition to several other firms during his 12 years in the securities industry. LPL has been plagued in recent years by customer complaints that LPL financial advisors were selling unauthorized investments or otherwise engaged in improper outside business activities.
