shutterstock_191231699The investment fraud lawyers of Gana Weinstein LLP are investigating the employment termination filed with The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) by Morgan Stanley involving broker Jamie Aguilar (Aguilar) out of the firm’s San Diego, California office.  According to BrokerCheck records Aguilar has been subject to three customer complaints.

According to Morgan Stanley, the firm terminated Aguilar in May 2016 after alleging his conduct included an outside financial transaction between the financial advisor and a client of the firm that was not disclosed to the firm.  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”.

At this time it is unclear the nature and scope of Aguilar’s private securities transactions.  However, according to brokercheck records, Aguilar has disclosed OBAs listed as including Events Magnificent, Inc.  Often times, brokers sell promissory notes and other investments through side businesses as accountants, lawyers, real estate brokers, or insurance agents to clients of those side practices.
