In the news again.
According to the FINRA website, Alex Makarovsky is once again in the hot seat for allegedly violating FINRA By-Laws and SEC rules. Makarovsky was most recently registered with Blackbook Capital, LLC.
Let’s go back a few years to build some context on his history. In 2010, while associated with Avenir Financial Group, Makarovsky allegedly made unauthorized trades in a client’s account. As a result, Makarovsky’s State of Indiana license was suspended for five years. In addition he and his firm had to pay a civil penalty and restitution to two customers.
