According to his BrokerCheck report, Antony Turbeville is the subject of two regulatory sanctions and one customer complaint.

In 2010 FINRA sanctioned Antony Turbeville following allegations he failed to supervise a registered representative of his member firm, Brookstone Securities, who allegedly made unsuitable recommendations, executed excessive trades, over-concentrated accounts, and used margin. Mr. Turbeville was issued a $10,000 fine and suspended from acting in any principal capacity for three months.

In 2009 FINRA sanctioned Antony Turbevile, while he was employed at Brookstone Securities, following allegations he misrepresented and omitted material facts, recommended unsuitable high-risk investments to elderly and/or retired customers, and effected transactions “by means of manipulative, deceptive, or other fraudulent” devices. Mr. Turbeville was issued a permanent bar from the securities industry and ordered to pay more than $1,000,000 in fines and restitution.

In 2008 a customer alleged Antony Turbeville, while employed at Brookstone Securities, made unsuitable recommendations, misrepresented material facts, breached his fiduciary duty, and churned the account. The complaint resulted in an award to the customer of more than $55,000.
