Brian John Hussey, Jr., (CRD #4640067) is a registered broker and investment advisor who is currently suspended by FINRA. His last (and only employer) is Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. (CRD #6363) of Tampa, FL. He has been in the industry since 2008.

Hussey’s suspension stems from a customer complaint on 9/23/2016 that he recommended unsuitable investments to a customer. The customer, who was also an administrative employee of Ameriprise, requested damages of $88,728.00. The firm settled for $67,019.24.

The customer alleges that Hussey unsuitably recommended that she liquidate two IRAs that she held which was the largest part of her liquid net worth, and invest in penny stocks focused on commercial marijuana. This was inconsistent with the client’s investment “growth” goals for both IRAs. The client lost most of her investments in these speculative securities.

Perry’s permanent bar follows a customer complaint in October 2016 alleging Perry made unauthorized trades, failed to follow transaction instructions, and provided poor service which resulted in losses.  The claim, according to the BrokerCheck report, was denied.

According to Wallace’s FINRA BrokerCheck report, Wallace was discharged from Ameriprise in February 2016 after she allegedly failed to follow clients’ instructions, communicated incorrect information to the client and used discretion on trades in the accounts.

Four months later, in June 2016, FINRA permanently barred Wallace from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sells securities to the public after she failed to respond to a FINRA request for information.
