In May 2009, FINRA Enforcement announced that Michael Ross Berkoff had been suspended from FINRA for a period of 30 business days and fined $10,000. Without admitting or denying FINRA’s findings, Berkoff consented to findings that he had failed to enter a stop-loss order on behalf of a client, and borrowed $8,000 from a customer in violation of Gunnallen’s firm rules, as well as FINRA Rules 2110 and 2370.
According to Berkoff’s FINRA Broker Report, he has also been named in three separate customer complaints involving unsuitable trading, use of margin, misrepresentation, and unauthorized trading.
Prior to working for Gunnallen Financial, Berkoff worked for Westminster Financial Services, Inc. in Vandalia, Ohio.
