Recovery Options for Clients of Philip Riposo & Riposo Asset Management
On March 3, 2022, Philip Riposo was fired from United Planners’ Financial Services for allegedly falsifying account statements and other documents related to Riposo Asset Management. According to records accessed from FINRA on April 20, 2022, Mr. Ripsos was terminated for admitting to creating and providing clients with fake account statements from “Zurich Kemper Investments.” The disclosure also states that Mr. Riposo accepted and deposited checks made payable to “Riposo Asset Management” for his personal expenses.
Following his termination by United Planners, Philip Riposo was investigated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA. Mr. Riposo refused to cooperate with this investigation. As a result, he was barred from the securities industry by FINRA.
