MARCH 2019 UpdateSEC enters consent judgement vs. William Gennity. 

JULY 2018

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged Alexander Capital and two of its managers for failing to supervise three of the company’s brokers who churned customer accounts, made trades without permission and made unsuitable recommendations to the customers.

The three brokers William C. Gennity, Rocco Roveccio and Laurence M. Torres had previously been charged with fraud in September 2017. The SEC found that Alexander Capital lacked reasonable supervisory policies and procedures designed to prevent such abuses to customers.

Alexander Capital agreed to be censured and paid ill-gotten gains, interest and penalties of more than $400,000.

The managers, Philip A. Noto II and Barry T. Eisenberg ignored red flags indicating excessive trading by the brokers.
