Timothy Prouty Enrolls Customers In Bad Investment Advisory Program Causing Investors Losses
Two investors came together in filing FINRA Arbitration #16-03473 on November 29, 2016 regarding Timothy Prouty’s activities. Supposedly, Prouty was responsible for placing the customer in Morgan Stanley’s Investment Advisory Program. Notably, this Investment Advisory Program, which affected eight of the customers’ accounts, was problematic and caused the customers to suffer losses. Not only that, but the customers claimed that losses were attributable to bad investments including junk bonds, ETFs and options.
According to the customers, Morgan Stanley was responsible for making unsuitable investments and using deceptive trading practices. Evidently, Morgan Stanley also owed a fiduciary duty to the customers which it violated. Additionally, the customers indicated that Morgan Stanley deficiently and negligently supervised Timothy Prouty’s actions, which caused the customer’s losses.
Eventually, the FINRA Arbitration Panel found Morgan Stanley Smith Barney legally responsible for harming the customers. Because of this, the Panel compelled Morgan Stanley to pay the customers more than $519,000 in compensatory damages. Notably, the Panel refused to expunge reference to the FINRA Arbitration Award on Timothy Prouty’s FINRA BrokerCheck Report.
