Michelle Perres: $100K-$500K Complaint Against Aegis Advisor
A recent investor complaint against Melville financial advisor Michelle Perres (CRD# 4350152) alleges that her conduct resulted in damages as high as $500,000. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records indicate that she is a broker and an investment advisor with Aegis Capital Corporation.
Ms. Perres’ BrokerCheck report discloses multiple investor complaints.

The pending complaint alleges damages between $100,000 and $500,000.
An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2012, alleged that as a representative of Liberty Partners Financial Services, she sold a security to purchase another without authorization. The complaint reached a settlement of $50,000. In a comment included with the complaint’s disclosure, she wrote that she denied “any unauthorized trades” and added that the firm’s CFO “offered the settlement as a business decision in order to mitigate the costs of arbitration.”
