Suspended Broker: Michael E. Heath of Infinity Financial Services

According to FINRA, the underlying misconduct in this case occurred between 2011 and 2016. At that time, Mr. Heath was employed at First Allied Securities. On February 6th, 2016, Mr. Heath was terminated by First Allied after he admitted to the firm’s compliance department that he failed to comply with internal email guidelines.

Upon review of the allegations, FINRA determined that Mr. Heath circumvented his brokerage’s firm’s communication rules by conducting business using an unapproved personal email account. As a result, records were not properly kept. This is a violation of FINRA Rule 4511. Without admitting or denying any wrongdoing in this case, former First Allied Securities broker Michael E. Heath consented to FINRA’s penalties.
