Former HD Vest Financial Advisor, Erin Verespy, Barred By FINRA Based On Allegations She Misappropriated Client Funds

Erin Verespy is a former Financial Advisor at HD Vest Investment Services in Trumbull, CT.  Erin Verespy has been in the securities industry since 1996 and previously worked at Bankboston Investor Services. 

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on April 15, 2019, Erin Verespy was sanctioned by FINRA, suspending her from associating with any member brokerage firm.  According to the sanction:

“Without admitting or denying the findings, Verespy consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that she refused to appear for on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA after her member firm amended her Form U4 to reflect that she had been named as a defendant in an investment-related, consumer-initiated civil litigation in which it was alleged that she misused and misappropriated the claimants’ funds in her capacity as bookkeeper and financial advisor.”
