WARNING: Advisor Donatas Vildzius SUSPENDED – Danbury, CT
Donatas Vildzius, Formerly with Network 1 Financial Securities, Suspended by FINRA
Have you lost money with financial advisor Donatas B. Vildzius from Danbury, Connecticut? We are looking into allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Donatas Vildzius. FINRA filed a complaint against Vildzius regarding allegations while he was affiliated with Network 1 Financial Securities. FINRA suspended Vildzius for 6 months and fined $5,000.
Vildzius was being investigated regarding allegations that he engaged in unsuitable and excessive trading (churning) in two customers’ accounts. FINRA alleged that two of Vildzius’s customers had accounts with a cost-to-equity ratios of 41% and 50% while at Network 1 Financial Securities. To put this in perspective, if an account had a cost equity ratio of 50%, that means the trading in the account would have to make a 50% profit annually just to break even from the costs of trading.
Donatas Vildzius was a registered representative and financial advisor with Network 1 Financial Securities from March 2015 to May 2019. He worked out of a branch office in Danbury, Connecticut. Vildzius has also been the subject of four customer complaints and four other regulatory actions.
