The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Brian Eyster, a Financial Advisor at O.N. Equity Sales Company in Farmington Hill, Michigan. Brian Eyster has been in the financial services industry since 1999 and previously worked for Park Avenue Securities.
According to publicly available records released by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), on July 10, 2018, the SEC instituted proceedings against Brian Eyster, ordering him to cease and desist activities that constituted alleged violations of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Specifically, it was alleged that Brian Eyster committed:
“…violations of the testimonial rule under the Advisers Act, which states that it shall constitute a fraudulent, deceptive, or manipulative act, practice, or course of business for any investment adviser registered with the Commission to publish, circulate or distribute any advertisement which refers to, among other things, any testimonial of any kind concerning the investment adviser. Eyster caused ON Investment Management Co. (“ONIMCO”) to violate the testimonial rule under the Advisers Act by publishing on the internet advertisements containing testimonials concerning Eyster and the investment advice and services he renders as an investment adviser representative of ONIMCO. The testimonials were available to the public on, among other places, YouTube.com and a website Eyster maintained for his business. By publishing statements containing client testimonials, Eyster caused ONIMCO’s violations of Section 206(4) of the Advisers Act and Rule 206(4)-1(a)(1) thereunder.”
Contemporaneous with the filing of the aforementioned cease and desist proceeding, Brian Eyster agreed to resolve the claims brought by the SEC through the payment of a fine.
