Posted on Saturday, January 6th, 2018 at 9:43 am
Erez Law is currently investigating former Axa Advisors, LLC financial advisor Chad Hornaday (CRD# 2776038) regarding selling away. Hornaday was registered with Axa Advisors, LLC in Carlsbad, California from 2013 to 2016, when he was terminated regarding, “RR was permitted to resign after the firm began conducting an internal review based upon allegations that RR received loans from a client and made an investment away from the firm.” Previously, Hornaday was registered with National Planning Corporation in Lake Forest, California from 2009 to 2013.
In January 2017, FINRA suspended Hornaday and in May 2017, FINRA barred Hornaday after he failed to respond to FINRA request for information.
Hornaday has been the subject of one customer complaint, according to his CRD report:
June 2017. “Claimant alleges RR solicited personal loans, embezzled monies by selling non-existent and unregistered securities, engaged in “selling away” and made unsuitable recommendations from 2013 to 2016.” The customer is seeking $453,000 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, Axa Advisors, LLC may be liable for investment or other losses suffered by Hornaday’s customers.
