The complaint was regarding oil and gas investments and took place while Chu was registered with RBC Captial Markets, LLC.

The complaint was regarding oil and gas investments and common and preferred stocks. The complaint took place while Chu was registered with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and RBC Capital Markets, L.L.C.
