Kenan Bell Customer Complaints

He has been the subject of one customer complaint, according to his CRD report:

April 2023. “The complainant alleges that, beginning in August 2020, the rep provided her with investment advice related to stock sales and her retirement accounts, which he wasn’t qualified to do, and which caused her to lose money.” The case is currently pending. The complaint was regarding common and preferred stocks and mutual funds losses, and it took place while he was registered with MML Investors Services, LLC.

March 2022. “The complainant alleges that the rep never disclosed to her that he was moving all of her money out of her existing mutual fund all at once, nor where the funds were moved to, nor that there would be capital gains taxes on this transaction. She further alleges that the rep moved other funds out of an account that she didn’t want touched and into another another account that she doesn’t have an understanding about, other than it is losing money. The activity appears to have taken place in 2021.” The case was settled for $30,000. The complaint was regarding mutual fund losses.
