Morgan Stanley Clients Take Aim At Broker Jonathan Lonske For Alleged Sales Practice Violations

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) reports troubling information on securities broker Jonathan William Lonske (CRD#: 2594921, Boston, Massachusetts). Notably, Morgan Stanley, who Lonske worked for between 2009 and 2020, disaffiliated with him for alleged transgressions. In addition, four investors challenged Lonske’s sales practices. Here’s more on these disclosures.

Morgan Stanley’s November 2020 Termination Of Jonathan Lonske

Evidently, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management disaffiliated with Jonathan Lonske on November 9, 2020. Allegedly, he misused a client relationship management (CRM) system and made inaccurate responses to employment-based questionnaires, according to Morgan Stanley. The securities broker denies the allegations.

Morgan Stanley Client Brings Lawsuit Over Suitability Of Lonske’s Trading

Notably, a client of Morgan Stanley brought a FINRA Arbitration Claim in October 2017 to dispute Jonathan Lonske’s actions relating to a managed investment account. It appears that the client invested in unsuitable investments from 2008 to 2017. It is possible that Lonske’s trading caused the client to experience losses. Evidently, Morgan Stanley compensated the client in the amount of $125,000 to put this claim to rest in June 2020.

Jonathan Lonske Supposedly Misrepresents Information About Structured Notes

Evidently, a second Morgan Stanley client took aim at Jonathan Lonske’s actions. In the January 2016 complaint, the client alleged misrepresentation of structured products. Supposedly, the investor relied on Lonske’s representations when purchasing or retaining structured notes. For this reason, the client received $36,158.86 in compensation from Morgan Stanley to settle.

Prior Investor Disputes Allege Misrepresentation, Suitability

It appears that a Morgan Stanley Smith Barney client disputed Jonathan Lonske’s actions as well. In the 2011 dispute, the client suggested that Lonske misrepresented mutual fund purchases. The securities firm paid the client $50,000 later that year to settle the matter. Finally, a UBS client received compensation after bringing a complaint alleging unsuitability and misrepresentation regarding mutual funds.
