Alex Makarovsky

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.

Michael McGregor

Since 1997, Michael Anthony McGregor has been registered with FINRA as a General Securities Representative (GSR). Through the years, McGregor has been subject to judgments and liens that have not been properly reported. By not reporting them, Michael McGregor is in violation of FINRA’s By-Laws and now he’s facing FINRA sanctions.

In March 2015, Michael McGregor was handed a 45-day suspension and fined $5,000 by FINRA for allegedly failing to amend and timely amend his FINRA registration to reflect unsatisfied judgments and liens he received. Without admitting or denying the findings, McGregor consented to the sanctions and to the entry of the findings.
