Did Donatas Belys Vildzius Cause You Investment Losses?
Donatas Belys Vildzius of Oxford, Connecticut was assessed a deferred fine of $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for a period of six months. The sanctions were based on findings that he engaged in quantitively unsuitable trading in violation of FINRA Rules 2111 and 2010. The suspension was in effect from October 19, 2020, through April 18, 2021.
In March 2015, Donatas Belys Vildzius joined Network I and was registered as a General Securities Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5) in May 2019, disclosing his termination due to alleged misconduct. According to the FINRA findings, while associated with Network I, Vildzius allegedly engaged in unsuitable trading in the accounts of two customers. The findings state that Vildzius recommendations and excessive trading resulted in high turnover rates and cost-to-equity ratios which resulted in commission and fees to be paid in the amount of $33,449 and losses totaling $32,240. Although Donatas Belys Vildzius is not currently registered or associated with a FINRA member firm, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 2111(a) provides in pertinent part that “[a] member or an associated person must have a reasonable basis to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy involving a security or securities is suitable for the customer, based on the information obtained through the reasonable diligence of the member or associated person to ascertain the customer’s investment profile.”
