Allegations Against Karen Boykin

A sample of the allegations made in the FINRA reported arbitration claim settlements and/or pending complaints for investment losses are as follows:

  • Based on the form U5 Amendment filed by the representative’s predecessor broker dealer, with regard to the purchase of a variable annuity and mutual funds, the customers alleged that Karen Boykin allocated their money in a high-risk tolerance category instead of in a moderate risk category consistent with their risk profiles. The customers maintain as a result, they lost 40% of their investment instead of 15%.

Karen Boykin Red Flags & Your Rights As An Investor

Of course, Karen Boykin did not admit to any of the allegations. But regardless of whether an arbitration award was entered, a settlement occurred, or the customer complaint is still pending, the allegations made by customers are red flags which should put all current and former customers of Karen Boykin at Woodbury Financial Services and Park Avenue Securities on alert to review carefully the activity and performance of their accounts and question whether Karen Boykin has engaged in any stockbroker misconduct that may have caused them investment losses.
