Broker Rodney Potratz Allegedly Caused Investor To Lose Millions

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) reports troubling allegations of sales practice violations by Rodney D. Potratz (CRD#: 2367896, Clive, Iowa). Apparently, the securities broker, who joined FSC Securities Corporation in 2003 and who works in its California and Iowa offices, is subject of two investor disputes. Notably, these disclosures suggest that Potratz recommended bad investments which caused big losses for his clients. Here’s more:

FSC Client Indicates That Rodney Potratz’s Alternative Investment Recommendations Caused $6M In Losses

Apparently, a client of FSC Securities Corporation contested Rodney Potratz’s investment advice by filing a FINRA Arbitration Claim #: 19-03409 on November 21, 2019. Mainly, the client alleged that Potratz recommended unsuitable DPP or LP interests. It appears that the stockbroker failed to consider the client’s risk tolerance or objectives when making recommendations. For this reason, the client alleged $6,000,000 in damages in this ongoing matter.

FSC Client Suggests That Potratz Gave Bad Advice Over Period Of Years

Previously, a client of AXA Advisors LLC and FSC Securities Corporation took aim at Rodney Potratz’s recommendations of mutual funds, annuities and direct investments for the client. It appears that this lawsuit, brought in 2012, alleged that his investment advice was inappropriate and unsuitable for several years. Not only that, but it seems that the client did not authorize Potratz to initiate securities purchases. Because of this, FSC Securities Corporation or AXA Advisors paid the client $30,000 to settle this matter.
