Tennessee Securities Misrepresentation Attorney
Tennessee has hundreds 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 make misrepresentations about investing in securities (stocks, bonds, options, mutual funds, REITs, Junk Bonds, Hedge Funds, Structured Products, etc.) they are selling, the strategies they are recommending (margin, short selling, option) and to engage in many other kinds of stockbroker fraud and stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Tennessee securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Jon Eric Guay, a former broker employed at Memphis, Tennessee-based Wunderlich Securities, Inc., submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent in which he agreed to the entry of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) findings that he received a total of approximately $225,000 from customers after he falsely represented to them that he would use their funds to open a futures trading account or invest in a company earning 3% annually on their funds. According to FINRA, Mr. Guay deposited the funds into a bank account controlled by him and made improper use of the funds, consisting of payment of his personal expenses and trading in his personal futures accounts. Based on FINRA’s findings, Mr. Guay’s misrepresentations, improper use and conversion of customers’ funds constituted a failure to observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in the conduct of his business. FINRA’s findings also alleged that Mr. Guay failed to provide his member firm with written notice before participating in a private securities transaction with a brokerage customer, which involved a $300,000 investment in a mutual fund. Mr. Guay did not provide his firm with written notice about his plans or his role in recommending and facilitating the mutual fund purchase, or any anticipated compensation he expected to receive. Mr. Guay of San Jose, California was prohibited from association with any FINRA member in any capacity.Experienced Securities Lawyers Who Represent Investors With Misrepresentation Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Tennessee and Nationwide
