The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) has suspended stockbroker Joseph Lianzo from the securities industry for eight months. Mr. Lianzo consented to the suspension after FINRA alleged that from March 2016 through November 2019, while associated with Laidlaw & Company (UK) LTD. and SW Financial, Mr. Lianzo excessively traded four customers’ accounts and placed 13 unauthorized transactions in violation of FINRA Rules 2111 and 2010. As a result of churning and excessive trading, the customers incurred high commissions and fees, and significant realized investment losses.
Customers of Mr. Lianzo, Laidlaw & Company (UK) LTD, or SW Financial should consult with a securities arbitration law firm.
