Erez Law is currently investigating UBS Financial Services Inc. financial advisor Mark Katz (CRD# 2155766) regarding unsuitable investment recommendations. Katz has been registered with UBS Financial Services Inc. in Houston, Texas since 2008.
Katz has been the subject of two customer complaints between 2013 and 2018, one of which was denied, according to his CRD report:
February 2018. “Time frame: 2016 Claimant alleges that the FA’s recommendation to liquidate her concentrated equity position and re-allocate to a diversified portfolio was unsuitable and that the tax consequences were misrepresented.” The customer is seeking $886,000 in damages and the case is currently pending.
Pursuant to FINRA Rules, member firms are responsible for supervising a broker’s activities during the time the broker is registered with the firm. Therefore, UBS Financial Services Inc. may be liable for investment or other losses suffered by Katz’s customers.
