Feb 22, 2022 AWC

Christopher Cacace (CRD #:4308782), a broker registered with Velocity Clearing and J. Streicher & Co., is the subject of a FINRA investigation after allegedly failing to supervise, according to his  BrokerCheck Record accessed on February 12, 2022.  

What is FINRA's Failure to Supervise Rule?

Brokerage firms are required by FINRA under FINRA Rule 3110 to properly monitor and supervise their brokers and financial advisers. 

FINRA Rule 3110 requires firms to:

  1. Maintain a supervisory system reasonably designed to achieve compliance with FINRA rules
  2. Designate a registered principle whose job it is to carry out supervisory responsibilities 
  3. Make reasonable efforts to determine that all supervisory personnel are qualified, either by experience or training

When an investment broker engages in wrongdoing against the interests of the client resulting in losses or damages, the brokerage firm and its designated supervisor may be held liable for the client's losses.

FINRA Allegations

According to an Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent agreement dated January 17, 2017, Christopher Cacace consented to the findings that he allegedly failed to ensure that his member firm (Legend Securities) reported, or timely reported, statistical and summary information regarding written customer complaints sent to the firm. 

Christopher Cacace allegedly violated FINRA Rule 4530, which requires associated persons to promptly report to firms specified events, including, for example, violations of securities laws and FINRA rules, written customer complaints, and certain disciplinary actions taken by the firm.

Sanctions

As part of the terms of the AWC, Christopher Cacace consented to: 

  1. A 20-day suspension from associating with any FINRA member in all capacities. 
  2. A $5,000 fine
