Did Wade Schuknecht Mislead an Investor?

Apr 12, 2022 Misrepresentation

Wade Schuknecht (CRD #: 4511077), a broker and investment advisor registered with Wells Fargo Clearing Services, was involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on April 5, 2022. 

According to the allegations filed on February 8, 2022, Wade Schuknecht promised an investment would yield 3.1% if held for one year, which allegedly did not happen. The firm denied the dispute. 

Misrepresentation is a common problem in the securities industry. It usually occurs when an investment broker makes false or misleading statements about a financial product in an effort to persuade their customer to invest. Stockbrokers should never guarantee returns. 

Firms can deny disputes without any external review, however, investors should know that they can still pursue FINRA arbitration and recover their losses following a denial.
