Oil and Gas and TIC Investment Losses With Alvery Bartlett and Wealth Management?

AdobeStock_762441-1-300x225Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) records indicate that Clayton, Missouri-based Arete Wealth Management broker Alvery Bartlett has been involved in pending or resolved customer disputes. Mr. Bartlett allegedly misrepresented and recommended unsuitable investments between 2012 and 2014. He also allegedly misrepresented and recommended unsuitable investments in oil and gas securities and tenant-in-common (TIC) interests. These are not suitable for all investors because they can be highly risky and illiquid investments. A broker must take into account a customer’s age, net worth, investment objectives and investment risk tolerance before recommending or selling an investment. If he does not, his brokerage firm may be liable for losses on a contingency fee basis in the FINRA arbitration forum. The firm has a duty to reasonably supervise its brokers while they are registered there.
Alvery Bartlett was previously registered with Clayton Brokerage Co. of St. Louis, Alvery Bartlett Brokerage, Derand/Pennington/Bass, Mark Twain Brokerage Services, The Bartlett Fund Management Co. and Berthel, Fisher & Company. He is currently registered with Arete Wealth Management in Clayton, Missouri, and has been since August 2016. He has two customer disputes against him, one of which is currently pending. This is all according to his online, public BrokerCheck report with FINRA.
