Enrique Lopez - LPL FinancialEnrique Lopez (CRD#: 2209385) was recently named in a FINRA complaint filed by a former client against LPL Financial for Northstar Healthcare Income REIT and other REIT losses.

The client alleged that between 2014 and 2016, Lopez misrepresented and recommended unsuitable, concentrated investments in speculative real estate investment trusts (“REITs”). The customer also alleged that Lopez recommended an unsuitable annuity switch. The customer is seeking $2 million in damages and the matter is still pending.

In April 2017, Lopez was the subject of a customer dispute that alleged he sold unsuitable products to a client that the client was not eligible for between October 2011 and December 2015. Damages were granted in excess of $1.5 million. Lopez was one of four financial advisors mentioned in the complaint.
