From 2006 until Li-Lin Hsu’s firing in 2015, Li-Lin Hsu was licensed with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. According to FINRA’s records, Li-Lin Hsu was fired by Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. on March 27, 2015. Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. reported to FINRA that Li-Lin Hsu was suspended on 3/9/2015 and terminated on 3/27/2015 after being accused of company policy violations related to maintaining a beneficiary relationship with a client, complaint handling, commingling funds, and conducting business with a foreign client.
Subsequent to Li-Lin Hsu’s firing by Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., FINRA investigated Li-Lin Hsu and brought a disciplinary action against Li-Lin Hsu. Li-Lin Hsu was barred from the securities and investment banking industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on July 5, 2016. FINRA reports that Li-Lin Hsu failed to respond to FINRA request for information. On September 21, 2016, the SEC denied Li-Lin Hsu’s application for review, affirming the FINRA bar.
FINRA reports that an arbitration claim was filed involving Li-Lin Hsu’s conduct with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., alleging that Li-Lin Hsu misappropriated investment funds intended for the claimant’s account. This claim was settled for $675,000.
FINRA also reports that an arbitration claim is pending against Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., which alleges that in August 2014, Li-Lin Hsu advised the claimants to purchase an unprofitable business for Li-Lin Hsu’s personal gain and that Li-Lin Hsu illegally borrowed money from them. This arbitration claim seeks $1,000,000 in damages.
