William Notrica: Ex-RBC Advisor Faces Suitability Complaint
San Juan Capistrano financial advisor William Notrica (CRD# 817537) allegedly recommended unsuitable investments, according to a recent investor complaint. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that the Aegis Capital broker and investment advisor was recently fired by RBC Capital Markets.
Mr. Notrica’s BrokerCheck report discloses multiple investor complaints. The most recent, filed in April 2023, alleges that as a representative of RBC Capital Markets, he recommended unsuitable investments and charged unreasonably high commissions and fees. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages believed to exceed $5,000.
An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2002, alleged that as a representative of Wachovia Securities, he breached his fiduciary duty and failed to recommend the sale of stocks held on margin. In 2006 the complaint reached a settlement of $87,500.
A third investor complaint, filed in 2001, alleged that as a representative of First Union Securities (later known as Wachovia Securities), he made unsuitable and unauthorized purchases of various securities. In 2004 the complaint reached a settlement of $12,000.
A fourth investor complaint, filed in 2000, alleged that as a representative of First Union Securities, he failed to follow instructions to sell stocks. In 2002 the complaint reached a settlement of $42,500.
Another disclosure on Mr. Notrica’s BrokerCheck report concerns his termination from RBC Capital Markets. Filed in January 2022, the disclosure states that the firm fired him in connection with allegations that he violated its “Time and Price Discretion Policy and Order Execution Policy.”
