UPDATE! Robert Tweed BARRED from Securities Industry
Robert Tweed, formerly of Concorde Investment Services, Barred from Securities Industry
Have you lost money with financial advisor Robert Tweed of San Marino, California? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Robert R. Tweed. FINRA barred Tweed from the securities industry regarding allegations that he made material misrepresentations when inducing customers to invest in his hedge fund, called the Athenian Fund.
The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) previously filed a complaint against Robert Tweed and his company, Tweed Financial Services. The SEC filed a complaint in the Central District of California alleging that Tweed and Tweed Financial Services sent misleading statements to investors to hide investment losses caused by the Athenian Fund LP.
The SEC alleged that Tweed solicited investors to put more than $1.7 million in the Athenian Fund. The fund was purported to invest in a master fund (the Quantitative Analytics Master Fund) that used a stock trading strategy. Instead, the SEC alleges that Tweed and Tweed Financial Services invested in two other investments that lost over $800,000. Moreover, Tweed sent investors false account statements to hide the losses.
Robert Tweed was a financial advisor and registered representative of Concorde Investment Services from August 2011 to November 2015. Tweed also worked with Cabot Lodge Securities from October 2015 to July 2018. He worked at branch offices in San Marino, California. Tweed has been the subject of at least eleven customer complaints.
Brokerage firms 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.
