September 2017-New York

Two New York City brokers working for Alexander Capital L.P. have been charged with securities fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission. William Gennity,30,  and Rocco Roveccio, 42,  have been charged with making unsuitable recommendations to customers resulting in ill-gotten gains for Gennity and Roveccio.

According to the complaint filed by the SEC , Gennity and Roveccio:

  • made recommendations that were unsuitable for certain of their customers in light of those customers needs, investment objectives and circumstances.
  • made material misrepresentations and omissions to customers.

In one of the customer disputes brought by a customer of his former employer, LCP Capital Corp, the customer alleged unauthorized trading, suitability, breach of fiduciary duty and churning.
