Initiated By – FINRA
Althar was named a respondent in a FINRA complaint alleging that he made unsuitable recommendations and engaged in excessive trading in two accounts held by an elderly customer. The complaint alleges that Althar engaged in high volume trading to generate commissions and over concentrated the customer’s accounts in risky securities, despite the fact that the customer was close to retirement and wanted only low risk investments. Althar’s trading decimated the customer’s accounts, which constituted the bulk of her net worth and retirement savings.
