Don Pollard (CRD #: 2181631), a broker registered with Eastgate Securities, was suspended by FINRA, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on February 19, 2021.

On January 22, 2021, Don Pollard was fired from Curtis Point Capital.

Just four days earlier, on January 18, 2021 Pollard was fired from Dalmore Group.

Both termination disclosures referenced his FINRA suspension. On January 8, 2021, Don Pollard entered into an Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent agreement (AWC) with FINRA in which he consented to the findings that he violated FINRA rules when he backdated lists of outside business activities for himself and another employee of the firm. Although these outside businesses were approved by the firm, the dates provided to FINRA were allegedly incorrect. These dates allegedly made it seem as though the documents had been approved before the date of the FINRA request, which is inaccurate. As part of the terms of the AWC, Pollard consented to a two-month suspension and a $10,000 fine. You can read a copy of the AWC here.

According to Pollard’s detailed BrokerCheck report, Don Pollard has the following outside business activities:

  • Interest/Everest Consulting Solutions
  • Lakeridge Capital
  • Wright Investors’ Service Distributors
