COMPLAINTS Against Advisor BRYAN MAZLIACH – Fort Lauderdale, FL
Bryan Mazliach, formerly with Laidlaw & Company and Westpark Capital, Subject of FINRA Complaint
Have you lost money with financial advisor Bryan G. Mazliach from Fort Lauderdale, Florida? We are looking into allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Bryan Mazliach. FINRA filed a complaint against Mazliach regarding allegations while he was affiliated with Laidlaw & Company.
Mazliach was being investigated regarding allegations that he engaged in unsuitable and excessive trading (churning) in customers’ accounts. FINRA alleged that five of Mazliach’s customers had accounts with a cost-to-equity ratios of 37% to 218% while at Laidlaw & Company. To put this in perspective, if an account had a cost equity ratio of 30%, that means the trading in the account would have to make a 30% profit annually just to break even from the costs of trading.
Bryan Mazliach was a registered representative and financial advisor with Laidlaw & Company from January 2015 to September 2017. He also was affiliated with Westpark Capital from August 2017 to December 2018. He worked out of a branch office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Mazliach has also been the subject of at least three customer complaints.
