First Allied Securities, Inc. Misconduct

First Allied has a recent history of investor complaints. In 2014, four investors brought a complaint against First Allied concerning broker Amram Yahalom’s sale of stock in Luxtera, a technology start-up. Yahalom sold Luxtera on a valuation that was more than 20 times its projected revenue for 2008. The investors argue that Yahalom was deceptive and negligent in his selling of Luxtera, which violates FINRA’s requirements for due diligence.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) makes First Allied Securities legally responsible for its brokers. Investors have the legal right to suitable financial recommendations that align to their interests, so if a broker offers negligent or unlawful investment advice, his or her firm may be held responsible for any damages the investor suffers. Losses as a result of broker misconduct can be recouped by the firm by which the broker is licensed.
