Next Financial Discharges Stockbroker Bad Recommendations

Arshad Hussain of Jasper Alabama a stockbroker formerly employed by Next Financial Group Inc. has been discharged by the firm on March 14, 2018 based upon allegations that Hussain (1) effected short-term trades of investments that were designed for long-term investors and (2) misstated account applications and disclosure forms in order to conceal the customers’ funding source for investments.

This is not the first time that Hussain has been terminated by a brokerage firm founded on accusations of his misconduct.

For example, on January 27, 2007, a customer filed an investment related complaint regarding Hussain’s conduct where the customer requested $5,000.00 in damages based upon allegations that stocks were purchased and sold in the customer’s account without the customer’s consent.

On September 16, 2008, another customer filed an investment related complaint concerning Hussain’s activities in which the customer sought $5,000.00 in damages founded on accusations that an unauthorized corporate debt transaction was placed in the customer’s account. Moreover, on November 25, 2011, a customer filed an investment related complaint involving Hussain’s conduct where the customer requested more than $5,000.00 in damages supported by allegations that unauthorized and unsuitable equity trades were executed in the customer’s account.
