The law offices of Gana Weinstein LLP are currently investigating claims that advisor Byron Treat (Treat) has been accused by a securities regulator of failing to supervise recommendations of certain illiquid investments. Treat was sanctioned by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) concerning whether Treat reasonably supervised the sale of certain illiquid investment. According to records kept by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Treat was employed by Great Nation Investment Corporation (Great Nation) at the time of the activity. If you have been a victim of Treat’s alleged misconduct, our firm may be able to assist you in recovering funds.
In January 2021, FINRA brought a regulatory action and found that Treat consented to sanctions and findings that he failed to provide documents and information requested by FINRA in connection with an investigation into whether Treat reasonably supervised the sale of certain illiquid investments while at Great Nation.
In February 2021 Great Nation terminated Treat alleging that he failed to supervise the sale of certain church bonds and failed to provide information related to the investigation.
In May 2013, Treat consented to a fine of $5,000 for failing to establish, maintain, and enforce an adequate supervisory system regarding the offering of certain investments at Great Nation.
