FINRA fined and suspended Todd Joseph Pilosi, formerly of RBC Capital Markets and LPL Financial's Fresno, CA branches for borrowing a total of $150,000 from a customer of his.
The report states that Pilosi (CRD #2257310) borrowed the funds in contravention of RBC Capital policy, and without documenting the loans—there were no set terms, and, to date, Pilosi has not repaid the loans.
After his customer filed a civil complaint in California state court seeking collection on the loans, Pilosi—who had since moved from RBC Capital to LPL Financial—disclosed to his new firm for the first time that he had borrowed funds from the customer.
LPL terminated Pilosi's registration on October 10, 2016, for borrowing money from an RBC customer.
A related complaint in Pilosi's BrokerCheck file indicates a $155,000 settlement to cover unpaid loans. The client had alleged breach of oral contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, conversion, and negligent failure to supervise.
