According to Daniel Barnard’s BrokerCheck report, the broker has five disclosures, including one pending customer dispute. The pending customer dispute from May 27, 2022, alleges that he breached his fiduciary duty with regard to oil and gas investments. The client claims that the recommendation of an approximately $25,000 investment in an oil and gas investment was unsuitable.
Prior to the current dispute, another claim was settled by Berthel Fisher & Co. for allegations that investments purchased from 2011 until 2017 were “illiquid and not suitable” for him. Furthermore, the client alleged that Barnard misrepresented the offerings, including direct investments, real estate securities, and oil and gas investments.
Unsuitable recommendations include those which are not in the best interest of an investor based on several factors, including their investment objectives, financial situation, risk tolerance, and experience.
In addition to multiple customer disputes, Barnard has two “Employment Separation After Allegations” reports. In 2008, he was discharged from Capital Analysts Incorporated after allegedly failing to follow the firm’s “policies and procedures with respect to borrowing money from a client.”
More recently, in 2018, Barnard was terminated from Berthel Fisher & Company Financial Services, Inc. after reportedly impersonating a client via telephone. Barnard has worked with seven firms, including Sun Investment Services Company and Pruco Securities Corporation.
