The law firm of Oakes & Fohser is presently investigating the alleged misconduct of securities broker Peter Monson. According to his publicly available FINRA BrokerCheck report, Peter Monson has been the subject of a regulatory sanction.

Peter Monson is a Minnesota based securities broker. He has worked in the securities industry for twenty-eight years. During his career, he has been registered with five different securities firms.

His Registrations 

  • Hayne, Miller Financial (1992-1994)
  • Global Financial Group (1994-2001)
  • Acument Securities (2001-2002)
  • 1st Discount brokerage (2002-2014)

The Allegations

In February 2020, Peter Monson was officially sanctioned by FINRA. The findings state that he excessively and unsuitably traded a customer’s IRA account. He allegedly continued actively trading incredibly risky microcap stocks even though the account had fallen over 60 percent and the customer was facing a serious illness. Due to this alleged unsuitable trading, Peter Monson was fined $7,500 and was suspended from acting as a securities broker in any fashion for a period of six months.
