David Howard Fagenson (CRD#: 1652012) is a previously registered broker and investment advisor. Most recently, Mr. Fagenson was employed at Newbridge Securities Corporation in Boca Raton, Florida (2016 to 2019). Previously, this representative was also associated with UBS Financial Services in Palm Beach, Florida (2010 to 2016).
On November 21st. 2018, FINRA suspended David H.

All together, these customers suffered more than $500,000 in financial losses.
Investor Complaints: David Fagenson Formerly of Newbridge Securities and UBS Financial Services
During his time at UBS Financial Services, at least six different investors filed complaints against David Fagenson. Five of these complaints were eventually settled. In 2016, Mr. Fagenson was terminated by UBS after allegations of misconduct.
Soon after, regulators launched an inquiry into his conduct. In the Letters of Acceptance, Waiver & Consent (AWC) signed by Mr. Fagenson, he consented to FINRA’s finding that he violated securities industry rules.
Among other things, investigators determined that Mr. Fagenson made trades so frequently that it was virtually mathematically impossible for his clients to avoid losses. This type of excessive trading is known as churning. Notably, the victims of Mr. Fagenson’s unsuitable trading strategies were elderly investors who wanted safe, secure investments.
