Specifically, a customer filed an investment related complaint pertaining to Roark’s conduct in which the customer requested $9,000.00 in damages supported by allegations that when Roark had been employed by Rauscher Pierce Refsnes and Dain Rauscher, omissions had been made concerning transactions that were facilitated in the customer’s account by the stockbroker; and investment recommendations made by the stockbroker regarding over the counter equities were not suitable for the customer given the customer’s risk tolerance, investment objectives or overall circumstances.

In addition, a customer filed an investment related complaint in reference to Roark’s conduct where the customer sought $13,037.00 in damages based upon accusations that when Roark was associated with RBC Dain Rauscher, transactions were unsuitable given the customer’s investment profile; and mutual fund investment recommendations made by the stockbroker led the customer to experience unwarranted losses.

An additional customer initiated related arbitration claim concerning Roark’s activities has been resolved for $275,000.00 in damages founded on accusations that when Roark was employed by Wunderlich Securities, false or misleading statements had been made in regard to the terms and conditions of oil and gas securities, common or preferred stocks and over the counter equities products which had been sold to the customer; and the customer’s account contained an excessive concentration in those speculative investments which resulted in undue losses.
