New York broker and Chief Compliance Officer of Trident Partners Ltd., William Michael Quigley (CRD# 1968265), was permanently barred by FINRA commencing on June 23, 2015, for failing to respond to a FINRA request for information, pursuant to FINRA Rule 9552(d). Quigley is barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. Quigley failed to request termination of his suspension within 3 months of the date of his Notice of Suspension, and therefore, was automatically barred by FINRA (FINRA Rule 9552(h)).
Additionally, on May 28, 2015, the Securities & Exchange Commission filed an indictment against Quigley alleging that he and his 2 brothers, Michael and Brian Quigley, participated in a fraudulent offering scheme from at least 2003 to 2012, while he was Chief Compliance Officer at Trident Partners Ltd., a brokerage firm in Woodbury, New York. The SEC alleges misappropriation of funds by the 3 brothers, as well as conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering conspiracy in connection with a fraudulent investment scheme. “Quigley and his co-conspirators allegedly engaged in a coordinated and sophisticated scheme built on lies and deceit to defraud overseas investors,” stated Acting United States Attorney Kelly Currie, for the Eastern District of New York.
William Michael Quigley was registered with Trident Partners Ltd. from October 2007 through September 2014, and was employed by Joseph Stevens and Co. from October 2005 through September 2007.
