Brantly Chavis – Brantly Chavis Jr., Financial Advisor Barred from Securities Industry | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses
Brantly Chavis, CRD #5577031
Brantly Chavis was previously licensed with OneAmerica Securities Inc. in California. FINRA reports that Brantly Chavis was barred from the securities and investment banking industry in 2015.
ACCORDING TO FINRA: Brantly Chavis consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that Brantly Chavis converted to his personal use at least $25,000 from his member firm’s customer. The funds that Chavis converted were funds that he obtained as an investment for an outside business activity. Chavis solicited $118,000 in purported investments for the outside business from then 87-year old customer (acting as power-of-attorney for her grandson’s account). The capital provided to the outside business by the customer was the only funding the company ever received. Chavis transferred to himself $25,000 of the funds the customer provided to the outside business. Brantly Chavis commingled the customer’s investments with personal funds, from which he then paid personal expenses unrelated to the outside business. The findings stated that Chavis also failed to disclose his involvement in the outside business activity, to his firm, as required by the firm and in accordance with the applicable FINRA rule.
According to Brantly Chavis’ CRD, a customer dispute was filed alleging Brantly Chavis misappropriated funds and or made unsuitable recommendation. According to Brantley Chavis’ CRD, this customer dispute is pending and seeks $208,000.
