Broker Robert Silvestri: Misconduct Investigation

November 30, 2023

National investment loss lawyers KlaymanToskes is investigating broker Robert Silvestri (CRD# 2037669) of Level Four Financial and Aegis Capital Corp., who has been permanently barred from acting as a broker by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), following his refusal to provide information and documents as requested by FINRA, in connection with the regulator’s investigation into U5 filings made by Level Four and Aegis, which alleged that he was terminated due to the borrowing of customer funds.

According to FINRA BrokerCheck, broker Robert Silvestri was previously registered with Level Four Financial from 2018 to 2022, when he was terminated due to allegations that he failed to follow the firm’s stated policies and procedures relating to disclosure information. 

Silvestri was also previously registered with Aegis Capital from January to July 2023, when he was terminated due to the firm’s notice that his license had been amended by his prior firm, to reflect that he had borrowed money from a client that he serviced. At or around the same time, the firm also allegedly received a phone call from the customer, who advised the firm that she had loaned Silvestri money while he was registered with his prior firm as well as when he was registered with Aegis. Aegis Capital allegedly investigated the matter and determined that Silvestri did in fact borrow funds from a client without the firm’s knowledge, consent or approval.
