Did Timothy David O’Brien Cause You Investment Losses?

Timothy David O’Brien of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in which he was fined $10,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member for 45 days. The sanctions were based on findings that he allegedly placed unauthorized transactions in violation of FINRA Rule 2010. The suspension was in effect from December 7, 2020, through January 20, 2021.

In May 2012, Timothy David O’Brien joined Feltl & Company and was registered as a general securities representative. According to the FINRA findings, O’Brien allegedly used a customer’s account to sell a limited partnership position and purchase Class A shares of a mutual fund. The findings state that O’Brien tried to contact the customer before placing the transactions but ended up executing the funds without her approval. The findings further state that once the customer became aware of the unauthorized transactions, she asked for O’Brien to reverse the transactions and he allegedly declined.
