WARNING! Douglas Studer of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Have you lost money with financial advisor Douglas Studer of Fort Lauderdale, Florida? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Douglas or “Doug” W. Studer. FINRA barred Studer after he failed to respond to an investigation regarding allegations that he was named in his 91-year-old customer’s estate documents to inherit the customer’s waterfront condominium in Fort Lauderdale.
Douglas Studer was a financial advisor and registered representative of Kovack Securities from October 2015 to July 2016. He worked at a branch office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He has been the subject of two customer disputes and also filed for bankruptcy in 2010.
Brokerage firms like Kovack Securities 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.
