Juan Carlos Sosa Allegedly Converted Customer’s Funds

According to a letter of acceptance on March 19, 2024, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has barred former SagePoint Financial advisor Juan Carlos Sosa (CRD#: 4059846) from associating with any FINRA member at any time.

According to FINRA, the securities regulator, on July 7, 2022, SagePoint (now known as Osaic Services) filed an amended Form U4, disclosing a customer complaint alleging that Sosa may have moved money from a customer trust to another customer’s account.

On July 18, 2022, SagePoint reportedly filed a Form U5 stating that Sosa was “permitted to resign during review by firm regarding representative being named successor trustee and beneficiary of a client’s trust.”

FINRA reportedly found that from at least April 2017 through November 2018, while associated with SagePoint, Sosa allegedly converted over $331,000 from an elderly customer for his personal use, thereby violating FINRA Rules 2150(a) and 2010.

According to FINRA, Sosa reportedly refused to provide information in its investigation, leading to the bar.

Sosa’s broker profile indicates that he has four customer disputes filed against him. Allegations included unsuitable investments, among others.

FINRA Rule 2150 prohibits any member or person associated with a member from making improper use of a customer’s securities or funds. It also prohibits any guarantee against a customer’s loss or sharing in a customer’s account.
