Arizona Securities Lawyer For Mutual Fund Investment Disputes
Arizona has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in Mutual Funds and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Arizona securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules as well as the stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Brent Burgesser of Chandler, Arizona allegedly effected 83 unsuitable mutual fund switches in the accounts of several customers, resulting in more than $63,700 in customer losses. Mutual fund “switching” is the process of transferring an investment from one fund to another, sometimes for good reason and other times to defraud clients. According to FINRA, Mr. Burgesser executed numerous mutual fund “switches” without having reasonable grounds for believing that such transactions were suitable for his customers. FINRA found that the former Wells Fargo representative generated approximately $109,500 in ill-gotten commissions for himself as a result of excessive mutual fund “switching.” Mr. Burgesser was suspended from association with any FINRA member for a period of 60 days and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.Experienced Securities Attorneys Handling Claims For Mutual Fund Investors In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Arizona and Nationwide
