Christopher Richard Wurtzinger (Christopher Wurtzinger) CRD #1921024

Christopher Wurtzinger was a previously licensed financial advisor with Sorsby Financial Corp, and Forest Securities, Inc. Christopher Wurtzinger is currently licensed with American Trust Investment Services, Inc. According to FINRA, Christopher Wurtzinger was suspended from the securities industry for four weeks in July 2020.

According to FINRA Allegations:

Wurtzinger consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he failed to conduct a reasonable analysis into whether the proposed activity of a member firm registered representative was properly characterized as an outside business activity or whether it should be treated as an outside securities activity, and also failed to document any analysis. The findings stated that in three instances, the representative submitted outside business activity forms seeking to engage in introduction and sales of a first position commercial mortgage program and disclosing that he would be receiving compensation in connection this activity. Wurtzinger reviewed the outside business activity forms and approved the activity as an outside business activity. The representative sold at least $3,365,000 in the program notes to investors outside of the firm. Two of the investors were firm customers who held accounts directly with the program sponsors. Although the representative failed to disclose certain facts about the program notes, the outside business activity forms did contain sufficient information to put Wurtzinger on notice that the proposed activity may be a securities activity. There was information in the public domain that should also have triggered such an inquiry, including for example, state regulatory actions and the fact that the program notes would be pooled. Among a self-advertised real-estate investment venture company suite of products were the program notes. The SEC filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against the company and its former owner, among others, claiming that the owner and the company operated a Ponzi scheme. In addition, prior to the submission of the second outside business activity form, Wurtzinger was involved in the firm’s denial of another representative’s request to engage in the program note sales because the firm had determined that the notes were securities.
