Investor Alert: Brandon Gioffre Barred from Securities Industry

(Last Updated On: August 17, 2016)
 According to FINRA, Brandon Daryl Gioffre (CRD #2854741, South Salem, New York) submitted an AWC in which he was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. Without admitting or denying the findings, Gioffre consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he participated in private securities transactions without providing prior notice to his member firm. The findings stated that Gioffre allegedly received commissions totaling $100,000 for the sale of approximately $2 million of securities to purchasers, who lost their entire investments.
Gioffre purportedly recommended to several people, including a customer of his firm, an investment in a private placement that was not offered through the firm. Gioffre allegedly created the false impression that the firm sanctioned the private placement by meeting with the issuer and potential investors at the firm’s offices and using his firm-issued email address to communicate with the issuer and potential investors.

For FINRA’s full finding see FINRA Case #2015046448701.

According to FINRA BrokerCheck, Gioffre was registered with Constellation Wealth Advisors in New York, NY  from 07/2014 – 08/2015, and with Morgan Stanley, in New York, NY from 06/2009 – 06/2014.
