Silver Law Group is investigating claims against brokers and financial advisors who committed securities misconduct in Orlando, Florida and the surrounding area.
Orlando is located in Orange County, Florida and has a population of just under 2.5 million as of July 2015, the third-largest metropolitan area in Florida.
Orlando is also known as the “Theme Park Capital of the World,” featuring numerous high-profile theme parks such as Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Epcot, Universal Studios, and Seaworld. In fact, the theme parks attracted over 66 million visitors to Orland in 2015 alone.
With a high population, though, comes a high amount of brokers and brokerage firms seeking to manage investors’ monies. As with any industry, brokerage firms and brokers sometimes commit misconduct.
Securities misconduct can come in numerous forms such as unsuitable recommendations, overconcentration, selling away, unauthorized trading, churning, misappropriation, and various other forms of securities misconduct.
A noteworthy brokerage firm that was based out of Orlando, Florida is IAA Financial, LLC (CRD# 6578). An InvestmentNews report notes that a majority of the brokers had previously worked at one or more defunct firms or FINRA-barred firms. IAA is now unregistered and some of the principals operate under International Assets Advisory, LLC (CRD# 10645), which is also based out of Orlando. Additionally, both broker-dealers are under common ownership.
With FINRA placing an emphasis on more closely monitoring recidivist brokers, that figure is concerning.
Additionally, with Florida’s high population of retirees and Orlando’s proximity to The Villages, Florida, a city largely composed of retirees and seniors, elder financial abuse and exploitation remains a concern.
