Have you lost money with financial advisors Gurpreet Chandhoke and Stephen Shea? The law office of Israels & Neuman is investigating allegations made about Gurpreet Singh Chandhoke and Stephen F. Shea from Orinda, California. FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) seeks to bar Chandhoke and Shea from the securities industry. FINRA alleges that Chandhoke and Shea raised $9.9 million in investments in VII Peaks BDCS (or business development companies) and AlesiaTec, without disclosing such to their former brokerage firms, which included Arete Wealth Management and Penserra Securities.
Gurpreet Chandhoke and Stephen Shea were financial advisors and registered representatives of Arete Wealth Management from May 2016 to August 2017. They were also affiliated with Penserra Securities from February 2015 to April 2016 and with Gordian Investments from September 2012 to September 2014. They worked in a branch office in Orinda, California.
Brokerage firms like Arete Wealth Management 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.
