Troy Baily (CRD#: 4458930) was previously registered as a broker with Sagepoint Financial in Omaha, Nebraska from November 2016 until March 2018. Bailey was suspended by FINRA for a period of six months and fined $5,000 following his acceptance of findings that he engaged in undisclosed and unapproved private securities transactions.
FINRA’s findings stated that Baily solicited investors to purchase securities in Future Income Payments, LLC (FIP). FIP represented itself as a structured cash flow investment, claiming to purchase pensions at a discount from pensioners and then selling a portion of those pensions as a pension stream to investors. FIP generally promised investors a 7% to 8% rate of return on their investment. Baily sold $210,000 in FIP purchase agreements to four investors, including three who were customers of his member firm.
Baily received a total of $8,900 in commissions in connection with these transactions. Respondent did not provide written notice to his firm prior to participating in the transactions involving FIP, nor did he obtain written approval from the firm. FIP ceased business, owing nearly $300 million in unpaid investor payments. In an indictment, the United States charged FIP and its owner with conspiracy to engage in mail and wire fraud related to FIP’s operations. Baily’s suspension began on October 19, 2020.
Baily has two other disclosures on his BrokerCheck report.
