Meyer Wilson Investigates Former Voya / ING Financial Broker Giovanni L. Acevedo

Meyer Wilson is currently investigating potential claims surrounding Giovanni L. Acevedo. These claims allege that Acevedo converted customer funds. 

Did you invest with Giovanni L. Acevedo (CRD# 2508321)? Meyer Wilson is currently investigating potential claims involving this broker.

Acevedo began working with ING of Des Moines, Iowa in August 2006. In September 2014, FINRA received a complaint regarding Acevedo. The client alleged that Acevedo had fraudulently taken $5,000 from her. Without admitting or denying the findings, ING settled the claim.

In May 2014, another investor brought a claim alleging that Acevedo "wrongfully manipulated her and her accounts, provided her with negligent investment advise and/or converted her investment funds to his own use and benefit." Without admitting or denying, ING settled the claim for $220,000.

On August 12, 2014, Acevedo was discharged from ING Financial Partners. According to ING, Acevedo did not follow firm policies and consequently decided that it no longer wished to supervise Acevedo.

A FINRA investigation into these allegations is currently pending. According to a Wells notice examination filed on January 16 of this year (#20140415290), FINRA recommended that disciplinary action may be necessary in conjunction with the following potential violations:

  1. Conversion of customers' funds
  2. Providing false information
  3. Failing to disclose two liens and a judgment
