David Volpe (CRD#:2543478) was accused by FINRA of engaging in private securities transactions and borrowing customer funds without approval of his firm. Volpe consented to sanctions and the entry of FINRA findings when he failed to produce information and documents requested by FINRA in connection with their investigation into whether he engaged in the alleged conduct.

In April 2019, Volpe was discharged by First Financial after Volpe failed to notify the firm of private securities transaction involvement and violated firm policy regarding borrowing funds from a client.

Volpe was terminated from LPL Financial in December 2018 after violating the firm’s private securities transaction policy for involvement in capital-raising efforts without prior disclosure.

Volpe has been associated with two other firms over the course of his 23 year career. AIG Financial Advisors from 2005 through 2008 and SunAmerica Securities from 1996 to 2005.
