Matthew Davis Banned from the Securities Industry After Allegations of Misconduct

Rochester stockbroker fraud attorneyMatthew J. Davis, formerly associated with OneAmerica Securities, Inc., was barred from the securities industry after the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority began to investigate allegations of Davis’s misconduct.

The Peiffer Rosca securities practice attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer are investigating the matter.

Davis was being investigated by FINRA regarding allegations that Davis had engaged in misconduct in several customer accounts. The alleged misconduct included conversion, misrepresentation of customer holdings and account values, forgery of account related documents, discretionary and/or unauthorized trading, efforts to settle a customer complaint away from his firm, and unsuitable recommendations, according to FINRA.

FINRA requested that Davis appear and provide testimony relating to the allegations. According to FINRA, Davis, through his counsel, informed FINRA that he would not appear for testimony and, subsequently, did not appear for testimony as requested.
Davis consented to being barred from the securities industry without denying or admitting FINRA’s findings.
