In particular, on December 19, 2006, a customer initiated investment related complaint concerning Teutonico’s activities was settled to resolve accusations that while Teutonico was associated with GunnAllen Financial Inc., Teutonico executed over-the-counter equities trades in the customer’s account that were inappropriate for the customer given the customer’s objectives for investing, financial circumstances, age or tolerance for risk.

Thereafter, Teutonico was subject of a customer initiated investment related arbitration claim where the customer was awarded $152,299.00 in damages based on Teutonico having been found liable on the customers claims of Teutonico engaging in unauthorized short-term trading; Teutonico effecting trades which did not reflect the customer’s objectives for investing; and Teutonico churning the customer’s over-the-counter equities portfolio. FINRA Arbitration No. 15-00180 (Apr. 7, 2016).
