Soreide Law Group provides you with this Investor Alert in regard to securities broker Shahida Arunima Hossain (CRD#: 2783839, Chicago, Illinois), who also goes by the name Shahida Syeda. Just in May 2020, RBC Capital Markets disaffiliated with the broker. In addition, two investors disputed her sales practices. Here’s more on the allegations against her.

RBC Capital Markets Disaffiliates With Shahida Hossain For Not Complying With Management Directive

Notably, in May 2020, RBC Capital Markets disaffiliated with Shahida Hossain. The firm alleged that Hossain did not follow a “management directive” which basically entailed getting permission from the firm before making options orders. It is possible that the broker made unauthorized orders.

Hossain Voluntarily Resigns From Wells Fargo

Shahida Hossain worked for Wells Fargo from 2003 to 2016. Evidently, Wells Fargo terminated the securities broker’s registration during an investigation. Specifically, Wells Fargo reviewed a complaint about Hossain taking a loan from a client. Also, the firm reviewed if Hossain privately spoke with clients against company policy. It seems that the broker left before the investigation concluded.

Evidently, in February 2017, a client of Wells Fargo Advisors challenged Shahida Hossain’s actions in their account. It seems that Hossain did not receive authorization from the client to use margin for certain investment transactions. Also, the client complained about the speculative nature of the investments. Purportedly, the broker caused the client to take significant risk while the client maintained conservative investment objectives. This matter settled through Wells Fargo making a $25,000 payment to the client.
