Joseph Fahmy Denied California License

Joseph Fahmy of Zor Capital barred from selling investments by California’s Department of Business Oversight

On November 29, 2016 the State of California’s Department of Business Oversight issued a bar order, denying Joseph Fahmy of Zor Capital permission to act as an investment advisor or as a broker dealer in California.  The denial relates back to an October 11, 2016 statement of issues filed by the Commissioner that lays out Joseph Fahmy’s disciplinary history with the state of Massachusetts, and his history of selling investments and providing investment advice without being properly licensed or registered.  The October, 2016 statement of issues was brought to deny Joseph Fahmy from acting as, or working for a broker dealer or investment advisor in California.

The denial and bar order sets forth Joseph Fahmy’s history as an unregistered investment advisor in Massachusetts, as well as his history with Zor Capital and Zenith Investment Advisors.  In addition, Joseph Fahmy’s history in the investment industry, as well as his disciplinary history can be found on the SEC’s investment advisory website, or by clicking here.  In entering their bar order against Fahmy, the Department of Business Oversight found that Fahmy is presently the subject of an eight year bar in the state of Massachusetts, which prohibits him from acting as an investment advisor.  That bar stems from findings that Fahmy made false filings with the Massachusetts regulators in connection with his investment advisor application in the state.

As a result of the investigation the Commissioner concluded that Joseph Fahmy should not be licensed as an investment advisor in California, and issued a bar order.
