PFS Investments Inc.

Erez Law is currently investigating former PFS Investments broker Raymi Valdes (CRD# 6006427), who was recently barred by FINRA related to merchant cash advances investment losses

According to FINRA, Raymi Valdes entered the securities industry in 2018 as a non-registered fingerprint person (NRF) with PFS Investments Inc. (Primerica). She worked with PFS Investments (Primerica) between 2018 and 2021, attending presentations made to firm customers and advising and responding to inquiries from insurance clients (who were also firm customers).

She was previously registered with HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. in New York City, New York from 2012 to 2013. 

It is alleged that she solicited investors to invest in a cash-advance business, which were not disclosed nor approved by PFS Investments. She was terminated by PFS Investments.

In November 2022, FINRA barred Raymi Valdes regarding “allegations that Valdes personally invested in a merchant cash advance business, and solicited others, including PFSI associates and employees, to invest, without disclosure to, and approval from, PFSI.”
