Henry Chang of Laidlaw Resigns from Morgan Stanley Following Allegations

Henry Chang (CRD #: 4049732), a broker registered with Laidlaw & Company (UK) in Pasadena, California, voluntarily resigned from his position at Morgan Stanley, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on July 9, 2021. He also has multiple investor disputes on his record.

Resignation from Morgan Stanley

On January 29, 2021, Henry Chang voluntarily resigned from his position at Morgan Stanley following allegations that he was involved in soliciting investments outside of his work for his member firm. FINRA does not allow brokers to sell securities outside of their brokerage. This is called “selling away.”

Investor Disputes

  • Two separate investor disputes allege that Henry Chang engaged in selling away – one dispute from January 8, 2021, and another on October 16, 2020. Both of those disputes are pending.
  • On April 12, 2019, an investor alleged that Chang executed unauthorized trades. The dispute was denied. Important note: Firms can deny disputes without undergoing a FINRA review. Denials simply mean that the firm denies its broker engaged in misconduct. Investors can still recover their losses following a denial.
  • On March 12, 2008, an investor alleged that Chang misrepresented auction-rate securities. The dispute settled for $75,058.
