The Allegations

In January 2018, a customer alleged that William Rossi III breached his fiduciary duty. This case is currently pending. The customer is seeking $400,000 in damages.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty 

Securities brokers have an obligation to always act in the best financial interests of their customers. This obligation is also referred to as their fiduciary duty. This duty is actually the entire foundation of the investor and broker relationship. Investors would never be able to leave their money with an outside party unless they could trust that it could be safe. This trust only exists because brokers are bound by their fiduciary duty to always act on the side of the customer. Securities brokers who breach this duty work toward the erosion of that trust.
