Investor Dispute

On September 29, 2022, an investor alleged that Shawn Oliver misled the client by misrepresenting a managed account fee. The investor further alleged that Shawn Oliver purchased mutual funds with money intended for paying off the client’s loan. This misconduct allegedly took place between February 10, 2021, and September 28, 2022.

This dispute was denied by the firm.

Investors should be aware, however, that firms can deny disputes without an external review. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration after a denial and may be able to recover their losses.

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits the use of manipulative, deceptive, or otherwise fraudulent tactics to influence investors’ decisions. The misrepresentation or omission of material facts (such as managed account fees) violates this rule.
