Steve Lu – Financial Advisor/Broker Steve Lu Barred from Securities Industry | Goodman & Nekvasil, P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
According to Steve Lu’s BrokerCheck Report:
Steve Lu was a previously licensed financial advisor/broker with J.P. Morgan Securities LLC.
According to FINRA:
Steve Lu consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that after meeting an elderly retiree living alone and exhibiting signs of dementia, he entered into a power of attorney with her naming him as attorney-in-fact with broad powers over her financial affairs and to appoint him as co-trustee over her assets, in violation of his member firm’s WSPs. The findings stated that in the trust agreement, Steve Lu was also named as the beneficiary of 75 percent of the individual’s estate. Steve Lu also made multiple attempts to open an account for the individual’s trust at a bank that was affiliated with his firm and that he was also employed by. Steve Lu repeatedly lied to the firm and bank personnel about his relationship with the woman by falsely claiming that she was a close family friend. The investigations group at the firm reported the matter to state government authorities, who subsequently appointed a guardian for the woman and brought legal action to revoke the power of attorney and trust agreement.
