INVESTIGATION of DANIEL MAUGHAN of Financial West – Los Angeles, CA

Daniel Maughan, previously with Financial West Group, Subject of FINRA Complaint


Have you lost money with financial advisor Daniel Maughan?  We are investigation allegations made about Daniel Gordon Maughan from Los Angeles, California.  FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) was investigating Daniel Maughan, a broker who previously worked with Financial West Group, regarding allegations that Maughan engaged in excessive trading or churning between October 2010 and January 2015.  FINRA alleged that one of Maughan’s customers had a cost-to-equity ratio over 21%.  To put this in perspective, if an account had a cost equity ratio of 10%, that means the trading in the account would have to make a 10% profit just to break even from the costs of trading.


Daniel Maughan was a financial advisor and registered representative of Financial West Group from May 2010 to August 2017.  He worked at a branch office in Los Angeles, California. Maughan has also been the subject of four customer complaints.


Brokerage firms like Financial West Group have a responsibility to adequately supervise all representatives who are registered through their firm.  Brokerage firms also must take steps to ensure that their financial advisors follow all securities rules and regulations, as well as internal firm policies.  When brokerage firms fail to adequately supervise their registered representatives, they may be liable for investment losses sustained by customers.
