Did Paul Steffany Cause You Investment Losses?

Paul Steffany of Stamford, Connecticut submitted an AWC to FINRA for allegedly falsifying documents and converting funds for his own personal use. Mr. Steffany was terminated from FINRA member firm Raymond James after violating company policy. FINRA alleged that while associated with Raymond James, Mr. Steffany wrote himself checks from the trust to compensate for his services. Mr. Steffany allegedly forged the signature of his co-executor on twelve checks and deposited them in an account held outside Raymond James. In 2013, FINRA found that Mr. Steffany paid himself an excess of $30,000 and an excess of $40,000 in 2013. FINRA claimed that between 2007 and 2014, Mr. Steffany, converted at least $112,742 that were excessive and inconsistent with the limited nature of his duties. Upon FINRA and Raymond James launching an investigation, Mr. Steffany refunded $112,742 and resigned as the trustee. FINRA found that Mr. Steffany violated FINRA Conduct Rules 2010, 2110, and 2330. Without admitting or denying the FINRA findings, Mr. Steffany was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.
