Matthew Hugh Hurley, of San Diego, California, a stockbroker formerly registered with Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., has been named in a customer initiated investment related arbitration claim, which settled on November 10, 2016, for $15,000.00 in damages based upon allegations that Hurley failed to execute upon the customer’s stop loss order, and charged the customer with excessive commissions on equity transactions.

Subsequently, on April 4, 2003, a customer filed an investment related written complaint regarding Hurley’s activities, in which the customer requested $81,000.00 in damages based upon allegations that Hurley made unsuitable recommendations regarding the purchase of growth oriented mutual funds. On October 30, 2014, a customer filed an investment related written complaint involving Hurley’s conduct, in which the customer requested $20,000.00 in damages based upon allegations that Hurley mismanaged the customer’s investment account due to effecting transactions in risky equities.
