Pierre Economacos Allegedly Violated His Firm’s Anti-Money Laundering Rules

Pierre Economacos (CRD #: 1860814) is the subject of a regulatory action by the SEC. This disclosure appears on his BrokerCheck record, accessed on October 31, 2023. Keep reading if you have questions about his alleged conduct. 

On September 18, 2023, the SEC issued a Cease-and-Desist Order in which the regulator alleged that Pierre Economacos failed to report suspicious and unusual transactions to the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) group at his firm. Firms are required to have anti-money laundering programs in place so that they can make Suspicious Activity Reports if necessary. 

One of Pierre Economacos’ customers allegedly made suspicious wire transfers to a relative. These transactions transpired near the date when a close family member announced that their firm would be acquired, an announcement that drove their share price up 30%. 

The SEC alleges that these transactions warranted further investigation. 

As part of the terms of the Cease-and-Desist Order, the SEC fined Pierre Economacos $20,000.
