Did you suffer investment losses due to recommendations by former Madison Avenue Securities, LLC broker Noel Vincent (CRD# 1370987)? Vincent was registered with Ele Wealth Advisors, Inc. in Southfield, Michigan from June to August 2018. Vincent was previously registered with Madison Avenue Securities, LLC in Houston, Texas from 2009 to 2018.

In August 2009, the state of Texas sanctioned Vincent to a $25,000 civil and administrative penalty and fine after he failed to have all forms and documents completed prior to obtaining a customer’s signature and had an administrative assistant add missing information to incomplete forms without a customer’s authorization, including but not limited to initialing on a customer’s behalf.

Vincent has been the subject of 18 customer complaints between 2008 and 2019, five of which were denied, according to his CRD report. Recent complaints are regarding:

This case was regarding real estate securities and oil and gas sector investments.

August 2017. “Claimant alleged suitability issues with a product they purchased in May of 2013 through another rep, not through Mr. Vincent who should not have been named in this case. Among other things, Claimant met the suitability requirement to purchase the product at issue, and Claimant signed the Subscription Agreement for the product. In addition, the product purchase was an alternative investment that performed to expectations, including paying dividends and going “full cycle,” which means it ultimately went public and was listed on the NASDAQ.
