According to the BrokerCheck records kept by Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) broker Robert Delguercio (Delguercio) has been the subject of at least eight customer complaints, two financial matters, and one employment separation. The customer complaints against Delguercio allege a number of securities law violations including that the broker made unsuitable investments, unauthorized activity, negligence, fraud, and misrepresentations among other claims.
One customer complaint filed in September 2013, alleged that from February 2007, through February 2012, that Delguercio made unauthorized transfers of funds from her account and the claimant’s now deceased husband and alleging $10,400,000 in damages. Another complaint filed in May 2012, alleged that Delguercio made unauthorized transactions and liquidations in the customers accounts leading to claims of over $1.2 million. After reading an earlier version of this article Mr. Delguercio reached out to our firm to comment stating that the woman in above arbitration provided a power of attorney to her husband and denies the charges made in the complaint. Mr. Delguercio stated that he expects that his position will be vindicated in a future arbitration hearing on this matter.
Delguercio entered the securities industry in 1995. From 2004, until January 2010, Delguercio was registered with PNC Investments (PNC). Upon termination from PNC the firm filed a Uniform Termination form (Form U5) stating that the reason for the firm’s termination of Delguercio was due to allegations by the firm that Delguercio received a verbal complaint from a customer alleging that Delguercio misrepresented a GNMA Bond. PNC then reviewed the complaint and Delguercio resigned at that time. Delguercio disputes PNC’s account of events. Thereafter, from December 2009, through February 2012, Delguercio was associated with UBS Financial Services Inc. Finally, Delguercio has been a registered representative with Herbert J. Sims & Co. Inc. since February 2012.
