If you have suffered securities losses with Anthony Vincent Ferrone, formerly of Morgan Stanley, Ameriprise and Stifel Nicolaus, please call 1-866-817-0201 for a free and confidential consultation with a private attorney. We believe that investors may be entitled to recovery for securities losses based upon recent actions concerning allegations of securities violations.
In July 2017, Mr. Ferrone was barred by FINRA from the securities industry. The reason was because of his refusal to give complete testimony in a regulatory investigation concerning allegations that he sold investors unsuitable investments.
Unsuitable investments are investments recommended by a broker that are too aggressive or otherwise consistent with the investment objectives of an investor. It can also mean any investment where a broker puts his personal compensation ahead of those of his investors. Investors sold unsuitable investments are entitled to damages from the broker and the broker’s employer.
This is a recent event in a history of events concerning alleged mismanagement of funds and other red flags as to Mr. Ferrone’s ability to act as a broker. Ferrone has four other allegations of mismanagement by investors, which are largely based on suitability issues.
Although Ferrone appeared for the FINRA investigation review on June 21, 2017, he did not provide complete testimony to FINRA. Specifically, during the review, Ferrone stated that he did not intend to proceed further on that date or at any future date and departed prior to the completion of his testimony.
