Did Melissa Ann Strouse Cause You Investment Losses?

Scottsdale, Arizona-based First Financial Equity Corporation (First Financial) and the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer (CCO), Melissa Ann Strouse, were named in a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) complaint alleging that they failed to establish and maintain a proper supervisory system with respect to the appropriateness of fee-based accounts and the monitoring of accounts for potential churning and excessive trading. According to the FINRA complaint, First Financial Equity had inadequate written supervisory procedures (WSPs) with respect to the appropriateness of fee-based accounts for the firm’s customers and had no system in place to address situations where excessive fees may have been charged. Furthermore, the Complaint alleges that First Financial failed to maintain and enforce a supervisory system related to its options business and that the firm allegedly had no WSPs for the supervision, approval and sale of exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The Complaint alleges that Melissa Strouse failed to ensure that the WSPs covered all required areas and were amended as needed.

Arizona has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices.  With so many stock brokerage firms comes the potential for a stock brokerage firm to fail to supervise its stockbrokers, financial advisors and investment advisors from engaging in misconduct which violates Federal and Arizona securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and the stock brokerage firm’s policies and procedures.
