We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Stephen Thomas Hurtuk. FINRA barred Hurtuk from the securities industry after he failed to respond to a FINRA investigation. FINRA was investigating Hurtuk after he was alleged to have made unsuitable recommendations to eight customers of his former brokerage firm, Stifel Nicolaus, between May 2015 and September 2016.
Stephen Hurtuk was a financial advisor and registered representative of Stifel Nicolaus from 2007 to October 2017. He worked at a branch office in Boardman, Ohio.

Brokerage firms like Stifel Nicolaus 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.
