SEC pulls license from New York broker-dealer Portfolio Advisors Alliance

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has revoked the broker-dealer registration of Portfolio Advisors Alliance, a New York brokerage firm specializing in buying/selling securities. 

According to the authorities, the firm and its president, Howard J. Allen, deliberately sold private placements for over a year using fraudulent documentation.

Portfolio Advisors Alliance Uses Fraudulent Documentation

In 2016, the SEC filed a civil injunctive action against the firm — alleging that from March 2011 to December 2013 the brokerage firm sold securities using documents that dishonestly claimed that audits the American Growth
Funding II (AGF II) had been completed.

Back in 2019, a jury in the SEC’s civil case against AGF II found Portfolio Advisors Alliance accountable for violating securities laws.
