WARNING! Impending Investigation: DONNA BEERS and TITAN SECURITIES
Donna Beers and Titan Securities
Have you lost money with financial advisor Donna Beers of Scottsdale and Fountain Hills, Arizona? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Donna Kay Beers. FINRA barred Beers from the securities industry after she failed to respond to a FINRA investigation. FINRA was investigating Beers regarding allegations that she sold a number of risky and illiquid private placements to a number of her customers.
Donna Beers and her husband James Beers were also the subject of an investigation by the Securities Division of the Arizona Corporation Commission regarding the same allegations. Arizona claimed that Beers had recommended a number of risky investments to her clients, including Fountain Hills Town Square LLC, Atlas Resources Public #17, DBSI Securities, ICON Leasing Fund Twelve, and Resource Real Estate 6 (“Resource RE”). Beers recommended these investments to one particular couple, who had 69% of their investable assets in these risky investments. Arizona revoked Beers’ securities license.
Donna Beers was a financial advisor and registered representative of Titan Securities from April 2009 to March 2013. She also worked with Private Consulting Group from 2001 to April 2009. Beers worked at branch offices in Fountain Hills, Arizona and Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition to the two regulatory investigations made against Beers, she also has at least three customer complaints filed against her.
Brokerage firms like Titan Securities and Private Consulting Group 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.
