INVESTIGATION of STEVEN LUFTSCHEIN / Aegis Capital – Melville, NY
Steven Luftschein, formerly with Aegis Capital Corp., Subject of FINRA Complaint
Have you lost money with financial advisor Steven Luftschein from Melville, New York? We are looking into allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Steven Luftschein. FINRA filed a complaint against Luftschein regarding allegations while he was affiliated with Aegis Capital Corp.
Luftschein was being investigated regarding allegations that he engaged in unsuitable and excessive trading (churning) in customers’ accounts. FINRA alleged that Luftschein’s customers had accounts with a cost-to-equity ratios of 35% to 123% while at Aegis Capital Corp. 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.
Steven Luftschein was a registered representative and financial advisor with Aegis Capital Corp. from June 2013 to October 2016. He also worked with Joseph Stone Capital from May 2017 to May 2018. He worked out of a branch office in Melville, New York. Luftschein has also been the subject of at least seventeen customer complaints.
