When A Brokerage Firm Violates Investors’ Best Interests Through Alleged Misconduct
FINRA Expels SW Financial For Allegedly Making Misrepresentations and Omissions
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has expelled SW Financial following multiple alleged violations related to Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI). The self-regulatory organization (SRO) contends that between January 2018 and December 2021, the broker-dealer and its co-owner Thomas Diamante made purported misrepresentations and omissions related to the sale of private placement offerings of pre-IPO securities and also allegedly engaged in churning and committed supervisory failures. This excessive trading allegedly impacted multiple customer accounts, resulting in costs of over $350K and losses greater than $465K.
