Former PNC Investments, LLC Financial Advisor, Christine Memet, Barred By FINRA After Allegedly Having Customer Account Statements Mailed To Her Home

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Christine Memet, a former Financial Advisor at PNC Investments, LLC in Hamilton, New Jersey.  Christine Memet has been in the securities industry since the 1990s and previously worked for Chase and 1st Discount Brokerage.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), in 2017, Christine Memet was suspended by FINRA for failing to respond to a request for information concerning her receipt of customer account statements at her home in violation of firm and industry policy.  Chritine Memet subsequently appealed the suspension, which was denied on July 27, 2018.

This same conduct led to Christine Memet’s termination by PNC Investments in early 2017.  In discharging Christine Memet, PNC determined that she was not honest in her explanation regarding why she was receiving customer account statements at her home.  In many instances, this occurs when the Financial Advisor is engaging in account activity that is unauthorized or when the Financial Advisor wants to conceal unsuitable trading activity that has caused investment losses.
