Update For Investors: Fuad Ahmed Ordered to Pay Over $13 Million in Restitution

AdobeStock_762441-1-300x225Former Washington, D.C.-based Success Trade Securities broker Fuad Ahmed was barred from the industry by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He and Success Trade were ordered to pay, jointly and severally, $13, 684,105.19, plus prejudgment interest, in restitution to investors. The SEC sustained these sanctions following an appeal of a National Adjudicatory Council (NAC) decision. Allegedly, Success Trade and Ahmed made misrepresentations and omissions of material fact when they sold $19.4 million of their parent company’s promissory notes to investors. This is against securities laws and internal firm rules.
