MICHAEL AHEARN of Wells Fargo and Merrill Lynch is BARRED
Have you lost money with financial advisor Michael Ahearn of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania?
The law firm of Israels & Neuman is looking into allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Michael John Ahearn. FINRA barred Ahearn from the securities industry. FINRA alleged that Ahearn provided false testimony during an investigation. FINRA was investigating allegations that Ahearn allowed another registered representative, identified as “GW”, to be the trustee of an account while failing to disclose that GW was registered with another brokerage firm.
Michael Ahearn was a financial advisor and registered representative of Wells Fargo from 2004 to May 2011. He also was with Merrill Lynch from May 2011 to September 2016. He worked at a branch office in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania.
Brokerage firms like Wells Fargo 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.
