WARNING! Impending Investigation: TAEK CHONG and JASON CHONG of Mercer Island, WA
Taek Chong and Jason Chong, formerly of Raymond James Financial Services, Both Barred from Securities Industry by FINRA
Have you lost money with financial advisors Taek Chong and Jason Chong of Mercer Island, Washington? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority), against Taek Man Chong and Jason Taek Chong. Taek and Jason Chong were both barred from the securities industry by FINRA after they failed to respond to an investigation. FINRA was investigating Taek and Jason Chong were under internal review by their brokerage firm, Raymond James Financial Services, regarding commissions from large institutional trades.
In 2017, FINRA also suspended another former Raymond James broker in Mercer Island. FINRA previously alleged that Fan Yip solicited an investor to invest $50,000 in a weight management start-up company without first disclosing such to Raymond James Financial Services.
Taek Chong was a financial advisor and registered representative of Raymond James Financial Services from 2000 to May 2018. Jason Chang also was affiliated with Raymond James Financial Services from June 2012 to May 2018. They worked at a branch office in Mercer Island, Washington.
Brokerage firms like Raymond James Financial Services 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.
