Settled Allegations of Wrongdoing Against Alvery Bartlett

Alvery Anthony Bartlett (CRD#: 13975) has five public disclosures, according to his BrokerCheck report. The report generated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) indicates that the first customer dispute was resolved in 2015 by clients alleging that investments Bartlett recommended and sold were unsuitable and that he misrepresented the potential risk. The claim was settled for $25,000.

In 2018, a second customer dispute alleging similar wrongdoing was settled for $450,000. The investor alleged that Bartlett made unsuitable recommendations and misrepresented material information. Furthermore, the client alleged that the firm, Berthel Fisher & Company Financial Services, Inc., failed to conduct adequate due diligence and failed to supervise its registered representative.

Two other disputes were settled against the broker in 2019 and 2020. Allegations again included unsuitability and misrepresentation. The more recent of the two also suggested that Bartlett’s investment strategy resulted in over-concentration. 

Recent Reports of Broker Misconduct

A pending customer dispute filed in April 2022 alleges that Bartlett recommended an unsuitable investment strategy and made misrepresentations to the clients. Accusations include that the strategy resulted in “large concentrations in illiquid, speculative, high-commission alternative investments.” The clients have requested $10 million in damages. 

Over his 39 years of experience, Bartlett has been employed with several firms, including Arete Wealth Management, LLC and Berthel, Fisher & Company. Many of the disputes arose while he was a registered representative of Berthel Fisher.
