Virginia Securities Arbitration Attorney for Junk Bond Investment Dispute
Virginia has hundreds of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in non-investment grade bonds also known as Junk Bonds and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Virginia securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Jeffrey Stephen Geraci, a broker formerly with Newport News, Virginia-based MICG Investment Management, LLC, was sanctioned by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) based on findings that Mr. Geraci made an unsuitable recommendation to a customer regarding a bond offering’s high-risk, speculative nature that was not consistent with the customer’s profile and the remainder of her portfolio. FINRA found that the bond, a Series A 9% Convertible Note issued by MICG Wealth Management, was illiquid and left the customer unable to sell if she needed funds. FINRA also determined that Mr. Geraci ignored visible red flags in the circumstances relating to the offering; and although he read the PPM, he did not heed its warnings of risk. Mr. Geraci of Virginia Beach, Virginia was suspended from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for two business days and ordered to pay $50,000, plus interest, in restitution to a customer. The suspension was effective from March 18, 2013 through March 19, 2013.Experienced Securities Lawyers Handling Claims For Junk Bond Investors In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Virginia and Nationwide
