Former Equitable Advisors Financial Advisor Kevin Klickna Discharged Due to Alleged “Repeated Document Integrity Issues”

Kevin Klickna (CRD#: 5640324) is an Investment Advisor and previously registered Broker.

Kevin Klickna entered the securities industry in 2009 and previously worked for Equitable Advisors, LLC; and AXA Advisors, LLC.

 

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), in May 2021, a customer dispute against Kevin Klickna was settled. The allegation states, “Client alleges she did not authorize an account rollover, and verified the signature on the rollover form was a forgery.”

 

In addition, Kevin Klickna has been the subject of two customer complaints, including one that remain pending, including the following:

 

  • April 2021–”RR discharged due to repeated document integrity issues involving client signatures and an allegation of establishing an online client account without authorization.” Kevin Klickman was discharged by Equitable Advisors, LLC.
  • March 2020–”Clients allege RR forged the client’s initials on the life insurance replacement form in 2020.” The customer dispute is pending.
  • March 2020–”Clients allege RR forged the client’s initials on the life insurance replacement form in 2020.” The customer dispute was settled.

FINRA regulations require that a customer’s written authorization is required before a broker-dealer can carry out transactions in the customer’s account. In addition, the broker-dealer’s member firm needs to approve the broker-dealer’s authorization. These measures are intended to protect the customer. Discretionary trading allows the broker-dealer to unilaterally decide to buy or sell securities at any price and not have to check with the client first. Exercising discretion without authorization can be costly to investors, and broker-dealers and their member firms, too.
