Investor Alleged Christopher Hain Failed to Follow Instructions
Christopher Hain (CRD #: 4740566), a broker registered with Robert W. Baird & Company, was involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on April 28, 2022. Read on if you have questions about Christopher Hain’s conduct as a broker.
Alleged Failure to Follow Instructions
On January 5, 2022, a trustee alleged that Christopher Hain failed to follow her instructions and put certain trust accounts into more aggressive investments in January 2021, leading to a 6% return on investment (ROI) instead of a 20% ROI.
According to the trustee, her brother also has an account managed by Christopher Hain which received a 20% ROI, and that forms the basis of her allegation that the children’s trusts should also have earned a 20% ROI in 2021.
This dispute was denied by the firm. However, investors should know that firms can deny disputes without allowing an external review. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration after a denial.
What is Failure to Follow Instructions?
Failure to follow instructions can be considered a violation of several FINRA rules. FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of professional honor.
Christopher Hain has passed the following exams:
- Series 66 – Uniform Combined State Law Examination
