Venturelli was being investigated regarding allegations that he engaged in unsuitable and excessive trading (churning) in customers’ accounts. FINRA alleged that Venturelli’s customers had accounts with a cost-to-equity ratios of 88% to 146% while at First Standard Financial Company 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.
