The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms. FINRA requires brokers and brokerage firms to report customer complaints and disputes as well as regulatory sanctions. In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.
In 2003, without admitting or denying the allegations, Martino agreed to a $15,000 fine and 60 days supervisory suspension to resolve allegations that he failed to adequately supervise registered representatives related to the issuance of 4 research reports.
In pending FINRA arbitration 17-1008, a customer of Axiom Capital Management seeks damages of $305,191 and alleges that Axiom and Martino committed fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and made material misrepresentations in connection with the sale of private placement investments.
Martino was discharged from Shearson Lehman Hutton in 1988.
