In June 2020, a customer filed a complaint alleging that Hoffman recommended the claimants invest $172,688.03 in Zima Global Ventures, LLC a/k/a Zima Digital Assets, an alleged fraudulent Ponzi scheme. The claim is currently pending.
In May 2020, Hoffman was barred by FINRA which found that he consented to sanctions and the findings that he failed to provide documents and information requested by FINRA. The findings stated that FINRA opened an investigation in response to a disclosure filed by Hoffman’s member firm, which stated that Hoffman had been suspended related to outside business activities and private securities transactions.
In May 2020 Hoffman was terminated by Ameriprise after the firm claimed that he terminated for company policy violations related to outside business activities and private securities transactions.
