The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) has barred stockbroker David Melilli from the securities industry for refusing to cooperate with a FINRA investigation into whether Mr. Melilli, among other things, exercised discretion without written authorization in a customer’s account. The investigation was launched after Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. terminated Mr. Melilli in January 2020, alleging that he placed discretionary trades without authority.
Mr. Melilli was associated with Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. in Moorestown, New Jersey, from September 2019 to February 2020. He was previously registered with SagePoint Financial, Inc. in Moorestown, NJ, from January 2010 until August 2019.
Customers of Mr. Melilli, Cambridge Investment Research, Inc., or SagePoint Financial, Inc. who have suffered financial losses, or suspect that Mr. Melilli did not have their best interest in mind when recommending investments or making account transactions, can contact New York securities arbitration law firm Iorio Altamirano LLP for a free and confidential consultation and review of their legal rights.
