A recent case involving a financial advisor, Joseph Haas, has raised serious allegations that could potentially impact investors tied to ROYAL ALLIANCE ASSOCIATES, INC. and Osaic, Inc., and particularly, OSAIC WEALTH, INC. (CRD 23131).

The Seriousness of the Allegation

On August 29, 2023, a customer dispute was filed against Haas, with one of two account holder TOD beneficiaries alleging that the financial professional failed to follow instructions to change distribution percentages, with the aim of increasing the plaintiff’s share of the proceeds. This case, filed under the identifier CUM-L-473-23N1010NN, is currently pending.

This allegation is serious as it raises questions about the professional conduct and integrity of the financial advisor. If proven true, it could potentially harm the reputation of the firms associated with Haas, leading to a loss of trust among investors and potential financial losses.

Understanding the Allegation in Simple Terms and the FINRA Rule

Essentially, the allegation is that the financial advisor did not follow the instructions of a client regarding the distribution of funds.
