The law firm of Oakes & Fosher is presently investigating the alleged misconduct of former securities broker Chad Hornaday. According to his publicly available FINRA BrokerCheck report, Chad Hornaday has been the subject of multiple customer disputes.

Chad Hornaday was a California based securities broker. He worked in the securities industry for twenty years. During his career, he was registered with eight different securities firms. He is no longer working as a registered securities broker in any fashion.

His Registrations

  • Washington Square Securities (1996, 2000-2002)
  • Sentra Securities Corporation (1997-2000)
  • Plainmember Securities Corporation (2003-2004)

The Allegations 

In June 2017, a customer alleged that Chad Hornaday solicited personal loans, embezzled funds by selling fictitious and unregistered securities, engaged in “selling away” from his member firm, and made unsuitable investment recommendations. This case was settled for $250,000 in damages. He resigned from his position at AXA Advisors when these allegations first came to light. During a FINRA investigation into the matter, Chad Hornaday allegedly failed to comply with their request for information and was barred by FINRA from acting as a securities broker in any fashion.
