Andrew Dutton is Facing a Half-Million Dollar Dispute

Andrew Dutton (CRD #: 6869349), a broker registered with Peak Brokerage Services, is the subject of an investor dispute. This is according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on February 20, 2024. Details concerning this dispute are provided below. 

On December 8, 2023, an investor alleged that Andrew Dutton breached his fiduciary duty and engaged in negligence. The investor is seeking $500,000. 

Fiduciary Duties

A fiduciary duty is a duty to work in a client’s best interest. Brokers are not fiduciaries, but they must follow the rules set forth by FINRA Rule 2111 and Regulation Best Interest. Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) are fiduciaries, and brokers are often dually registered as RIAs.  (To learn more about the differences between brokers and Registered Investment Advisers, click here.) 


Many types of broker misconduct may qualify as negligence. Typical examples include unsuitable investment recommendations, misrepresentations or omissions of material fact, and failure to follow instructions.
