Jetmir Ahmeti: Sanctioned For Opening Customer Accounts Without Their Knowledge

Jetmir AhmetiPublicly available records provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on May 10, 2017 indicate that former Texas-based Edward Jones broker Jetmir Ahmeti has been sanctioned by FINRA and suspended from acting as a broker. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Ahmeti (CRD# 5568499).

Jetmir Ahmeti has spent six years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Edward Jones in Dallas, Texas (2009-2015). He was previously registered with AXA Advisors in Plano, Texas (2008-2009). He has passed two securities industry examinations: Series 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Examination) and Series 7 (General Securities Representative Examination). He is currently not registered with any firm or state.

According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received two regulatory sanctions and was discharged from a former employer.

In April 2017 FINRA sanctioned him following allegations he “opened 14 new accounts without the knowledge and authorization of the purported account owners.” FINRA’s findings state further: “Ahmeti submitted information to open new accounts at his member firm for 14 individuals without first contacting the individuals and obtaining their consent. The individuals were Transfer on Death beneficiaries of existing clients of Ahmeti. Ahmeti gathered basic information on the 14 individuals from his existing clients, while making guesses regarding items such as the individuals’ investment objectives, income, and risk profile. Submitting information to open a new account for an individual without the knowledge or permission of the individual violated his firm’s policies and procedures. Nonetheless, Ahmeti completed new account opening documents for the 14 individuals on the firm’s electronic system without contacting the individuals to obtain their authorization or to verify the information.” He was issued a nine-month suspension from acting as a broker.

In 2015 the State of Texas sanctioned Jetmir Ahmeti following allegations he “did not disclose to his firm or the Commissioner that he had been charged with a felony, in violation of the Texas Securities Board rules.” He was issued a fine of $5,000 and a 30-day suspension.

In 2015 he was terminated from his position at Edward Jones following allegations he opened 14 accounts, “one of which was for a deceased person,” without speaking to the “putative account owners.”
