Garrett was also alleged to purchased shares of one company on behalf of a couple from another of his customers, at a price that was $3 above the market value, causing the couple to lose about $34,000.
Patrick Garrett was a financial advisor and registered representative of Robert W. Baird & Company from 2000 to February 2014. He worked at a branch office in Nashville, Tennessee. According to Garrett’s BrokerCheck report, he has been the subject of two customer complaints.
