Christopher P. Anthony, Formerly of Rhodes Securities, Under Investigation for a $2 Million Customer Dispute

Posted: June 6th, 2017

Apostolos Nicholas Papadea Fined and Suspended by FINRA on silverlaw.comSilver Law Group is investigating former Texas-based Rhodes Securities, Inc. (CRD# 19610) broker Christopher P. Anthony (CRD# 1157930) after a customer filed a $2 million FINRA arbitration against him.

According to Anthony’s FINRA BrokerCheck report, a customer filed a FINRA arbitration complaint in January 2017 against Anthony alleging breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, breach of contract and damages in the amount of $2 million.

Another customer dispute was filed in August 2016 alleging unsuitable investments, churning, failure to supervise between the early 2014 to Spring 2015.  The complaint alleges $100,000.00 in damages.

Rhodes Securities discharged Anthony in April 2015, alleging Anthony failed to adhere to heightened supervision, traded with discretion, and traded outside the investment objectives stated for a client’s accounts.

Rhodes Securities employed Anthony from June 1995 until the firm terminated him in April 2015. Anthony operated out of Rhodes Securities’ Fort Worth, Texas branch.  According to Anthony’s detailed CRD report, Anthony was president and secretary of Seventh Street Partners LP and Seventh Street Partners GP LLC.  He also served as managing member and chief compliance officer of Seventh Street Partners GP LLC.

Among other basic tenets, brokers are required to recommend suitable investments to their customers. This requires that the broker: Investigates and conducts due diligence into the investment’s attributes including its benefits, risks, tax consequences, and other relevant factors to form a reasonable basis for the recommendation of the product; and appropriately matches the investment with the customer’s specific investment needs and objectives, such as the customer’s retirement status, long or short-term goals, age, disability, income needs, or any other relevant factors.

When a broker or brokerage firm fails to recommend investments to its customers along those guidelines, there has to be accountability.  If you have lost money on an investment that did not fit your investment profile, you may be able to recover some or all of your lost money.
