Did You Lose Money with BRIAN HUSSEY of AMERIPRISE FINANCIAL?
Brian Hussey, with Ameriprise Financial Services, Suspended Seven Months from Securities Industry
Have you lost money with financial advisor Brian Hussey of Tampa, Florida? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Brian J. Hussey, Jr. FINRA suspended Hussey from the securities industry for seven months and also considered fining him but Hussey alleged that he had an inability to pay a fine.
FINRA was investigating Hussey for allegations that he made unsuitable investment recommendations to a customer. In particular, Hussey recommended that her client invest 100% of her account in two penny stocks – Fusion Pharm, Inc. (ticker FSPM) and Hemp, Inc. (ticker HEMP). The investments in Fusion Pharm and Hemp, Inc. lost considerable value. FINRA alleged that these stocks were highly speculative, and that these were unsuitable for the customer.
Brian Hussey was a financial advisor and registered representative of Ameriprise Financial Services from February 2008 to May 2018. He worked at a branch office in Tampa, Florida.
Brokerage firms like Ameriprise Financial Services have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm. Brokerage firms also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations, as well as internal firm policies. When brokerage firms fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
