Mar 15, 2022 Investor Disputes

Hector Rivera (CRD #: 4826616), a broker registered with Oriental Financial Services, has racked up 13 investor disputes. This is according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on March 2, 2022.

On November 11, 2021, an investor alleged losses due to investments in closed-end funds. Closed-end funds can come with high fees that undercut any gains for the investor. The investor is seeking $52,083.81; the dispute is pending.

Over-Concentration
