John Borsellino – Financial Advisor/Broker John Borsellino Suspended from Securities Industry | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses
John Borsellino was a previously licensed financial advisor with Morgan Stanley. According to John Borsellino’s CRD, John Borsellino was suspended from the securities industry for three months and fined $5,000 in December 2019
According to FINRA Allegations:
John Borsellino consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he recommended and then made unsuitable securities transactions in customers’ accounts. The findings stated that John Borsellino recommended that customers purchase municipal bonds and non-municipal securities in their brokerage accounts, which caused the customers to incur upfront sales charges. In each instance, John Borsellino transferred the security to the customer’s existing fee-based account shortly after purchasing it (generally within 90 days), and, in each instance, John Borsellino could have purchased the security in the fee-based account without any upfront sales charges. The upfront sales charges associated with the unsuitable purchases made in the customers’ brokerage accounts totaled approximately $58,000, all of which John Borsellino’s member firm has reimbursed to his customers. John Borsellino earned $23,931 in connection with the unsuitable recommendations. John Borsellino lacked a reasonable basis to believe that the recommended securities purchases made in the customers’ brokerage accounts were suitable because he failed to exercise reasonable diligence and failed to consider the costs associated with the transactions.
