Back in August, we told you about Bradley Joseph Tennison (CRD#: 156988), who was barred by FINRA after his discharge from Genos Wealth Management of Mesa, AZ. Tennison was discharged for “selling away,” the practice of offering and selling securities that are not offered by the broker’s firm of employment. The firm was unable to locate any records of these investments, and Tennison was not completely cooperative.
A new customer dispute was filed on 10/19/2018, alleging that Tennison recommended to the client that he sell his investments in order to invest in a private placement trust that Tennison managed. Tennison also did not disclose to the customer that he was strictly prohibited from recommending these kinds of investments without review and the express approval from Genos. This allegation led to his discharge from Genos in April of 2018. This customer requests damages of $1,200,000. The case is currently pending.
Several customer claims relate to an investment in the Joseph Project. Genos has denied liability and claims Mr. Tennison sold this investment without authorization. However, Genos may be liable for Joseph Project losses or the acts of Tennison.
