J.P. Morgan Securities Broker Robert Owen Klein Subject of Multiple Customer Complaints

In December of 2014, we posted a blog regarding allegations against J.P. Morgan Securities, LLC and one of the firm’s registered representatives, Robert Owen Klein (CRD# 1254422). At the time, Klein was accused of investing roughly 40% of his clients’ assets in short selling treasury bonds. As a result, the concentrated investments resulted in over $1 million in losses for the clients.

Since our last blog, Klein has been the subject of additional customer complaints, including one in which a client alleges breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, negligence, and making unsuitable investment recommendations.

In October of 2015, a customer complaint against J.P. Morgan Securities LLC. alleged losses of $1.75 million for Klein’s misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty in connection with unsuitable investments, improper allocation of assets, misrepresentation, and omissions of information. The customer was awarded $1,150,141.60 in an arbitration against Klein’s member firm, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC., as a result of his alleged misconduct.

According to his BrokerCheck report provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Klein has been the subject of 11 total customer complaints.
