Financial Advisor Brandon Stimpson Terminated By Allegis For Failing To Follow Firm’s Code Of Ethics

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Brandon Stimpson, a former Financial Adviser at Allegis Investment Advisors in North Logan, Utah.  Brandon Stimpson has been in the securities industry since the 2000s and was previously employed by Signator Financial Services.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on December 13, 2017, Allegis terminated Brandon Stimpson after it was determined that he allegedly “failed to follow firm policies and code of ethics.”  This discharge comes on the heels of Brandon Stimpson being the subject of eight customer complaints since 2015, including one pending complaint, dated October 2017, in which the customer alleged
“the options strategy that was active in the account was unsuitable and a trade in Aug 2015 cause the account a loss.”  The alleged damages are $300,000 and the matter remains pending.

In addition, the other customer complaints against Brandton Stimpson allege:

  • December 2016—”Stimpson was named in a customer complain that asserted the following causes of action: unsuitability; unauthorized trading, failure to supervise; and breach of fiduciary duty.” The matter went to a final arbitration hearing and damages of $404,000 were awarded to the customer.
  • June 2016—”Client alleges that the strategy in which the advisory account were invested in was unsuitable and a trade in August 2015 caused a loss to the client.” The complaint alleges damages of $400,000 and remains pending.
  • November 2015—”Client alleges that a recent trade placed in the advisory account was outside the scope of the strategy.” The matter was settled for $35,000.
