Investment Losses Caused by Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.

Our Securities Fraud Attorneys Fight to Recover Your Losses

Charles Schwab Corporation (NASDAQ: SCHW) is one of the world's largest discount brokers. Founded in 1973, Charles Schwab is a savings and loan holding company, which through its subsidiaries engages in securities brokerage, banking, and related financial services. The publicly traded company is headquartered in San Francisco, California and has over 300 branch offices in 45 states, one branch in London, and one in Puerto Rico.

A securities brokerage firm licensed by FINRA, Charles Schwab has a legal duty to supervise its brokers and its brokers' recommendations to clients to ensure compliance with and prevent violations of the rules of the security industry. When an individual broker is negligent or acts in an unlawful manner against the interests of the client and that client suffers damages as a result of such wrongdoing, the firm may be held liable for the investor's losses.

Charles Schwab & Charles Schwab Registered Broker Misconduct

Charles Schwab has a checkered past. Like many investment firms in the U.S., there have been certain instances that warranted disciplinary action from FINRA or the SEC. For example, in 2011, FINRA required Charles Schwab to pay back investors $18 million in connection with YieldPlus Bond Funds. FINRA found that Charles Schwab had been improperly marketing these bond funds by misrepresenting them and concealing certain pertinent information.

In 2012, FINRA charged Charles Schwab for violating some of its rules. FINRA found that the investment firm had mandated that its investors waive their right to bring class action lawsuits against them. Charles Schwab also made its investors agree that arbitrators in any arbitration proceedings could not consolidate multiple claims. Both requirements violated FINRA's rules.

In February 2013, three complaints were brought against Charles Schwab. Although FINRA ended up dismissing two of them, one remained and the FINRA panel required the investment firm to pay a $500,000 fine in addition to amending their account-opening document verbiage. If you or someone you know lost a significant amount of money after investing with Charles Schwab or due to the misconduct of a Charles Schwab registered broker, then you may have a claim.
