Pennsylvania Securities Lawyer For Mutual Fund Investment Disputes
Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules as well as the stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, former Cetera Advisor Networks broker Mark Koehler was barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for refusal to produce information and documents requested by FINRA pertaining to an investigation into unsuitable trading in a senior customer’s accounts, including short-term mutual fund switching and excessive trading.
FINRA’s investigation began in April 2014, upon receipt of a tip that Mark Charles Koehler of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, had engaged in unsuitable trading in the accounts of a senior customer. FINRA reviewed trading in Mr. Koehler’s other customer accounts and investigated the following: whether Mr. Koehler engaged in unsuitable short-term mutual fund switching and excessive trading; whether he placed undue influence on a customer before her passing; and whether Mr. Koehler failed to disclose his status as beneficiary in the same customer’s will.
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, FINRA sent Mr. Koehler two requests for documents and information. Mr. Koehler failed to respond to either requests instead stating through counsel that he would not produce the documents or information requested. Mr. Koehler violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010 by refusing to comply with FINRA’s request. As a result, Mr. Koehler was barred from associating with any FINRA member in any capacity.Experienced Securities Attorneys Handling Claims For Mutual Fund Investors In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Pennsylvania and Nationwide
