Eytan Nisim Naftali
Naftali improperly borrowed a total
of $20,000 from two
elderly customers at his member firm. The loans were interest-free
and did not have any repayment terms. The firmís procedures
generally prohibited borrowing money from customers, except in
and those procedures required registered representatives to obtain
the firmís written
approval before entering into such loans. Naftali did not seek or
obtain the firmís approval
before entering into the loans. Naftali has since repaid one of
the customers in full, but still
owes the other customer $8,500.
Eytan Nisim Naftali : Fined $2,500; Suspended 45 days; Ordered to pay $8,500 plus interest in restitution to customer. FINRA took into account Naftali's suspension by his firm.
