Third, UBS Financial Services claimed Julian Gingold falsely marked customers’ trading tickets. Fourth, Julian Gingold reportedly failed to provide straightforward answers to UBS Financial Services during the firm’s review of his activities.

Customer Allegations Of Excessive Trading, Suitability Involving Robert Schultz
Robert Nathan Schultz (CRD#: 1769129, Houston, TX) is a former UBS Financial Services securities representative. The firm reported on Robert Schultz’s FINRA BrokerCheck profile that a customer complained about Robert Schultz’s sales practices. According to the customer, Robert Schultz made excessive trades in the customer’s account. Not only that, but the customer claimed that it was not suitable for Robert Schultz to put the customer in municipal bond funds, government sponsored enterprises (GSEs), real estate investment trusts (REITs), master limited partnerships (MLPS), exchange traded funds (ETFS), mutual funds and other equities. Additionally, the customer stated that Robert Schultz charged the customer excessive fees and commissions on investments. Apparently, Robert Schultz’s excessive and unsuitable trades transpired from 2009 to 2015. Because of this, UBS Financial Services opted to settle the customer’s complaint by paying the customer $275,000.
UBS Discharges Gayle Dilla For Discretionary Trading In Investor’s Account
Gayle Anne Dilla (CRD#: 1633766, Washington, DC) is a past general securities representative for UBS Financial Services. The firm employed Gayle Dilla from January 16, 2009 to November 7, 2017. Evidently, UBS Financial Services discharged Gayle Dilla for her discretionary trading in investor accounts. Apparently, Gayle Dilla used time and price discretion, where Gayle Dilla made decisions as to the price or time to execute customer’s order for a security. Allegedly, Gayle Dilla did not provide UBS Financial Services with any documentation evidencing that customers authorized her discretionary trading. Not only that, but the firm seemingly did not authorize the customers’ accounts as discretionary. FINRA commonly fines and suspends brokers who make unauthorized trades or who exercise discretion in customer accounts without customer or firm approval in writing. Gayle Dilla is now a general securities representative of NBC Securities Inc. (Hunt Valley, MD).
