Broker Sean Zhang’s Customers allege Unsuitable Investment Recommendations & Misrepresentation
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the regulator barred financial advisor XIANGYU YU ZHANG “Sean Zhang” (CRD#: 5050282) on May 28, 2020 after he allegedly failed to comply with an arbitration award or settlement agreement or to respond to a FINRA request to provide information concerning the status of compliance.
According to FINRA’s findings, Zhang had already allegedly been suspended in April 2019 after his member firm, Wells Fargo dismissed him for allegations of “violating company policy requiring that he maintain accurate books and records where he submitted altered documents for processing.”
Wells Fargo reportedly filed an arbitration suit against Zhang on September 9, 2019 for allegations of “breach of a promissory note; common count for money lent; common count for account stated; and unjust enrichment.”
The FINRA panel reportedly found in favor of Wells Fargo ordering Zhang to pay the firm $1,419,549.36 plus interest.
According to Zhang’s broker report, he was reportedly affiliated with Wells Fargo in Alhambra, CA from 2017 until 2019. He also purportedly worked for Cetera Investment Services in Arcadia, CA for 7 years. His broker profile indicates a history of alleged broker misconduct including 6 customer complaints and 2 employee separations in addition to the regulatory actions.
