Did Anthony Tricarico Cause You Investment Losses?

Anthony Tricarico of Livingston, New Jersey submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which he was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member for a period of six months. The sanctions were based on findings that he allegedly engaged in excessive and unsuitable trading in violation of FINRA Rules 2111 and 2010. The suspension is in effect from February 1, 2021, through July 31, 2021.

In March 2010, Anthony Tricarico joined Aegis Capital Corp. while registered as a General Securities Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing Tricarico’s voluntary termination. According to FINRA’s findings, Tricarico allegedly engaged in excessive and unsuitable trading in three firm customers’ accounts. The findings state that while Tricario exercised de facto control over the accounts, his trading generated high cost-to-equity ratios and turnover rates. In addition to the findings, the customers paid a total of $44,733 in commissions and fees while incurring losses totaling $39,848. Although Anthony Tricarico is no longer registered through or associated with a FINRA member firm, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.

Do You Need a New Jersey Securities Account Churning Attorney?

FINRA Rule 2111, requires, among other things, an associated person “to have a reasonable basis for believing that a series of recommended transactions, even if suitable when viewed in isolation, are not excessive and unsuitable for the customer when taken together” in light of the customer’s investment profile. Excessive trading occurs, and is unsuitable, when a registered representative has actual or de facto control over trading in a customer’s account and the level of activity in that account is inconsistent with the customer’s investment needs and objectives. A violation of FINRA Rule 2111 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons to observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.
