CRD#: 4556340

Call 800-500-4442 if you think that you have received unsuitable investment recommendations from your adviser.  

TORY A DUGGINS (CRD#: 4556340), a previously registered broker for SPARTAN CAPITAL SECURITIES, LLC, in New York, NY, is suspended from the securities industry. FINRA’s findings allege that Duggins’ customers relied on his advice and routinely followed his recommendations and, as a result, he exercised de facto control over the customers’ accounts. Duggins’ trading resulted in high cost-to-equity ratios and turnover rates that were well above the traditional guideposts of 20 percent and six, respectively, as well as significant losses. Specifically, Duggins’ trading in the customers’ accounts generated total trading costs of $444,176, including $343,416 in commissions, and caused $235,494 in total realized losses. Duggins’ trading was excessive, unsuitable, and not in the best interest of the customers given their investment profiles. The findings also stated that Duggins willfully failed to report a written customer complaint alleging a sales practice violation on his Form U4. A customer sent Duggins an email complaining that he excessively traded the customer’s account and seeking $17,500 in compensatory damages. Duggins received and read the email but did not forward the customer complaint to his member firm’s compliance department as required by the firm’s policies.
