Enforcement Notice - Hearing - IIROC Begins Disciplinary Action Against Former BBS Securities Inc. UDP Bardya Ziaian

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Aug. 14, 2019 /CNW/ - An appearance has been scheduled before a Hearing Panel of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) for the purpose of setting a date for the disciplinary hearing in the matter of Bardya Ziaian.

The discipline hearing concerns allegations that Mr. Ziaian engaged in improper trading activity by obtaining allocations of new issues for the purpose of proprietary trading and not for the purpose of allocating the new issues to clients of BBS Securities Inc. – contrary to Dealer Member Rule 29.1.

IIROC formally initiated the investigation into Mr. Ziaian's conduct in May 2015. The alleged violations occurred while he was a Registered Representative at BBS Securities Inc., an IIROC-regulated firm. Mr. Ziaian is no longer a registrant with an IIROC-regulated firm. 

The set date appearance is open to the public, unless the Hearing Panel orders otherwise. The date for the discipline hearing will be made available at www.iiroc.ca.

Set Date Appearance:  September 25, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.

Location:  IIROC - 121 King Street West, Suite 2000, Toronto, Ontario

The Notice of Hearing and Statement of Allegations which sets out the allegations is available at: http://www.iiroc.ca/documents/2019/436460ad-da2a-4a1a-9cf6-5926f7eb1e2e_en.pdf
