Morgan Stanley Client Indicates That Bobby Kolev Made Unauthorized Transactions

A client of Morgan Stanley took issue with Bobby Kolev through a complaint in July 2020. Principally, the client alleged that Kolev made unauthorized transactions in the client’s Morgan Stanley account. Apparently, Kolev bought 10,000 shares without the client’s knowledge or permission.

A client of Lehman Brothers also took issue with Bobby Kolev through an April 2008 complaint.

Apparently, the client sustained catastrophic losses by investing in these products. For this reason, Lehman Brothers paid half a million dollars to this client to settle this dispute.

Deutsche Bank Disaffiliates With Bobby Kolev For Misconduct On The Job

Prior to joining Morgan Stanley, Bobby Kolev used to work for Deutsche Bank Securities.

In addition, Deutsche Bank stated that Kolev made unauthorized transactions. He supposedly tried to persuade clients that they gave him authorization to trade using discretion. Clients never gave him permission though. Ultimately, Kolev violated the securities firm’s policies.
