Investigation of Scott Muirhead and Merrill Lynch
Have you lost money with financial advisor Scott Muirhead of Jacksonville, Florida? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, against Scott Muirhead. FINRA barred Muirhead from the securities industry after he failed to respond to a FINRA investigation. FINRA was investigating Muirhead regarding allegations that he engaged in unapproved private securities transactions without authorization from his brokerage firm, Merrill Lynch, and that he “misused” customer funds.
Scott Muirhead was a financial advisor and registered representative of Merrill Lynch from March 2014 to December 2014. He worked at a branch office in Jacksonville, Florida.
Brokerage firms like Merrill Lynch 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.
