BrokerCheck Reports Disputes About George Nikolakakos For Advice
Soreide Law Group is investigating the advancement of certain lawsuits against securities broker George Nikolakakos (CRD#: 2907561, Omaha, Nebraska). Critically, five investors brought disputes which suggest that the broker caused their investment losses. Here’s what we know so far.
Four Points Client Indicates George Nikolakakos Provided Unsuitable Recommendations
Evidently, a client of Four Points filed a July 2020 lawsuit over George Nikolakakos’s sales of stocks. Allegedly, Nikolakakos made unsuitable recommendations to the client from 2014 to 2017. In addition, the broker supposedly concentrated the client’s assets in risky investments and charged unreasonable commissions. For this reason, the client demands more than $543,000 in compensation in this ongoing matter.
Nikolakakos Supposedly Mismanages Four Points Client’s Account
Apparently, a second Four Points client came forward to challenge George Nikolakakos’s actions. Namely, the client contended that the broker mismanaged the client’s investment account from 2001 to 2017. This could mean that Nikolakakos traded investments that were unsuitable and which caused the client to sustain investment losses. For the alleged account mismanagement, the client asked for more than $107,000 in damages. As of November 13, 2020, this matter is ongoing.
Four Points Client Indicates George Nikolakakos Violated Securities Laws
Also, a client of Four Points contested Nikolakakos’s sales practices through a FINRA Arbitration Claim in August 2018. Allegedly, the broker or Four Points violated not only FINRA rules but also state and federal securities laws. It appears that Nikolakakos caused the client to invest in stocks that were unprofitable and which were not appropriate. Because of this, Four Points opted to settle this matter through making a $87,500 payment to the client in May 2019.
