William Rossi III

Publicly available records provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and accessed on July 11, 2018 indicate that Florida-based Valmark Securities broker/adviser William Rossi III has received a pending customer dispute. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Rossi (CRD# 2909610).

William Rossi has spent twenty-one years in the securities industry and has been registered with Valmark Securities in Gainesville, Florida since 2000. He was previously registered with Raymond James Financial Services in St. Petersburg, Florida (1997-2000). He has passed two securities industry examinations: Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination), which he obtained on August 2, 1997, and Series 7 (General Securities Representative Examination), which he obtained on July 8, 1997. He is a registered broker and investment adviser with six US states and territories: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one pending customer complaint and one civil legal complaint.

In January 2018 a customer alleged William Rossi, while employed at Koss Olinger Consulting, breached his fiduciary duty in connection to a variable annuity product. The customer is seeking approximately $400,000 in damages in the pending complaint.

In December 2017 an individual named Teena Kathleen Clifton filed civil litigation against William Rossi in the Eighth Judicial Court in Alachua, Florida alleging that while he was employed at Koss Olinger Consulting, he breached his fiduciary duty in connection to a variable annuity investment. The claimant seeks a monetary penalty other than fines in the complaint, which remains pending.
