Santander Client Files FINRA Arbitration Suggesting Mariondy Fernandez Sold Unsuitable Investments

A client of Santander Securities brought FINRA Arbitration #: 19-01373 on May 15, 2019 in regard to Mariondy Fernandez’s trading. Supposedly, Fernandez made unsuitable trades involving Puerto Rico closed end funds and Puerto Rico bonds. Not only that, but the client indicated that Fernandez over-concentrated the client’s assets in the Puerto Rico securities. Allegedly, Fernandez breached a fiduciary duty and engaged in negligent behavior. Also, Santander Securities allegedly failed to supervise Fernandez. For this reason, the client alleged up to $5,000,000 in damages in this ongoing matter.
