According to BrokerCheck records kept by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) advisor Alonza Barnett (Barnett), in March 2017, was barred from the industry by FINRA after FINRA requested documents and information and he failed to request termination of his suspension within three months of the date of the Notice of Suspension drawing an automatic bar from association with any FINRA member in all capacities. Previously, Barnett was registered with Ameritas Investment Corp. (Ameritas).
In February 2017 a customer filed a complaint alleging that for a 15 year period Barnett engaged in conversion of funds, breach of fiduciary duty and constructive fraud, and violation of the North Carolina Investment Advisors Act. The claim appears to involve private securities. The claim alleged $1,750,000 in damages and is currently pending.
At this time it is unclear the extent and scope of Barnett private securities activities. Barnett CRD lists that he is engaged in fixed insurance products and operates a d/b/a called Dacthler Wealth Management as an outside business activity. The providing of loans or selling of notes and other investments outside of a brokerage firm constitutes impermissible private securities transactions – a practice known in the industry as “selling away”.
