Current And Past Allegations Of Conduct Leading To Investment Loss

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), in May 2023, FINRA sanctioned Jason Pintus, barring him permanently from all capacities, indefinitely, beginning May 8, 2023. The FINRA sanction states, “Without admitting or denying the findings, Pintus consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he refused to appear for on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA in connection with its investigation into his and his member firm’s supervision of a registered representative. The findings stated that FINRA sought to investigate, among other issues, Pintus’ role in the potential falsification of documents produced to FINRA; supervision of the representative; supervision of third-party wires for AML red flags; supervision of other firm representatives’ potential excessive trading; and Pintus’ own potential excessive and unauthorized trading.”

We Help Investors Recover Investment Losses

FINRA regulations require that a customer’s written authorization is required before a broker-dealer can carry out transactions in the customer’s account. In addition, the broker-dealer’s member firm needs to approve the broker-dealer’s authorization. These measures are intended to protect the customer. Discretionary trading allows the broker-dealer to unilaterally decide to buy or sell securities at any price and not have to check with the client first. Exercising discretion without authorization can be costly to investors, and broker-dealers and their member firms, too.

In addition, to the extent a Financial Advisor converts client assets during the course and scope of his employment and/or registration with the brokerage firm, that brokerage firm may be held liable for any attendant losses.
