In March 2016 FINRA barred Thomas Schober following allegations he recommended unsuitable annuity exchanges for two customers, who were seniors. Senior claims are very serious. According to FINRA’s complaint, “the victims of Schober’s unsuitable recommendations are ages 84 and 83, respectively, who maintained separate brokerage accounts with Schober at his member firm. One of the customers held power of attorney for the other, who suffers from dementia. Both customers were conservative investors with limited financial means who relied on the income from their investments.” Mr. Schober “effected the annuity exchanges in the accounts of the customers and designed these exchanges to benefit himself at the customers’ expense,” and when the customers paid roughly $154,642 in surrender charges, Mr. Schober received at least $65,000 in commissions. He allegedly failed to disclose the surrender charges they would incur and did not explain the associates sales charges. FINRA additionally stated that Mr. Schober “attempted to conceal the unsuitable annuity exchanges by providing false information concerning the source of funds on the annuity transaction documents he submitted to the firm and annuity companies.”

In January 2015 Thomas Schober was discharged from his position at SII Investments following allegations he failed to comply with firms related to variable annuity surrenders and “intentionally” provided inaccurate information in response to a firm inquiry.
