The law firm of Oakes & Fosher is presently investigating the alleged misconduct of securities broker Timothy Hobbs. According to his publicly available FINRA BrokerCheck report, Timothy Hobbs has been the subject of multiple customer disputes over the course of his career.

Timothy Hobbs is a Texas-based securities broker. He has worked in the securities industry for twenty-five years. During his career, he has been registered with four different securities firms.

His Registrations

  • Dominion Capital Corporation (1994-1996)
  • VSR Financial Services (1996-2016)
  • Summit Brokerage Services (2016-2017)
  • Callaway Financial Services (2017-Present)

The Allegations

  • In December 2008, a customer alleged that Timothy Hobbs made material misrepresentations about a purchased annuity policy. This case was settled for $20,000 in damages.
  • In February 2014, a customer alleged that Timothy Hobbs recommended unsuitable investments and breached his fiduciary duty. This case was settled for $82,000 in damages.

Fiduciary Duty

The relationship between investors and securities brokers exists on a foundation of trust. The reason that investors can generally feel secure in trusting their broker is because they are aware that brokers are obligated to always act in their customers’ best financial interests. This obligation is also known as the broker’s fiduciary duty. Brokers who breach this duty work toward the erosion of that trust, which in turn can significantly damage the broker/investor relationship.
