Peter David Holler (CRD #838897, Bristol, Tennessee):
Recently, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority announced that Peter David Holler executed an Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which Holler was assessed a deferred fine of $10,000, suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for two years and ordered to pay $49,790, plus interest, in deferred disgorgement of commissions received.
Without admitting or denying the findings, Holler consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he engaged in a series of private securities transactions without providing notice to, or obtaining approval from, his member firm prior to participating in these private securities transactions. The findings stated that Holler solicited investors to purchase promissory notes in a purported real-estate investment fund. Ultimately, Holler sold approximately $1.39 million in the promissory notes to individuals, nine of whom were the firm customers. Holler received $49,790 in commission in connection with these transactions. Holler also purchased approximately $75,100 of the promissory notes for himself.
