Sigma Financial Corporation

Our Investment Law Attorneys Fight for Client Rights

Sigma Financial Corporation was founded in 1983. The firm offers comprehensive investment planning services, including estate planning and tax reduction strategy services. Located in Ann Arbor, MI, Sigma Financial is an independent firm and continues to reject acquisition offers in efforts to remain autonomous and self-directed. Sigma Financial has 500+ representatives.

Because Sigma Financial is licensed with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), they are subject to certain laws and regulations to protect investors. Chief among these laws is the obligation for Sigma Financial to oversee their brokers, ensuring that they obey FINRA rules in all business transactions. If an unsupervised broker causes severe losses to a client through misconduct, deceit, or unethical trading, Sigma Financial can be held legally responsible to repay the losses to the investor. Meyer Wilson can help clients file successful claims.

Repeated Failure to Supervise

Sigma Financial Corporation has an unfortunate history of poor supervision that has resulted in several fines levied against the firm and its individual representatives. In late 2014 FINRA fined Sigma $185,000 for repeated instances of lack of supervision, including not being notified when representatives changed their websites, designing systems that only monitored about 10% of their emails, and not scheduling FINRA inspections often enough. In addition, they sold securities that were not sufficiently investigated, putting investors at risk.

The result of such lax supervision is a culture that breeds underhanded tactics. For example, Sigma Financial broker Joral Schmalle paid nearly $2 million in settlements with customers from 2011 to 2013 alone for misrepresentation and fraud selling tenancy-in-common securities. One case alone was a $1.2 million settlement. In his history, Schmalle has paid out $3 million to Sigma clients alleging fraudulent behavior, and he still has over a dozen cases in arbitration currently. What’s worse, Joral Schmalle is far from alone. More Sigma brokers are currently facing customer accusations, and many of them are being settled in six-figures or more.
