The regulator reportedly charged Duncan with fraud, claiming two banks warned the advisor that the Turkish investment was probably a scam. He allegedly ignored the warnings, failing to disclose the risks to clients, while purportedly promising 100% return on investment on the product, according to the SEC. Duncan reportedly has two customer complaints filed against him. In June 2022, the SEC reportedly found that Duncan breached his fiduciary duty to his clients by (a) failing to disclose material facts, including his conflict of interest in the Turkish investment and (b) concealing unambiguous scam warnings from two banks regarding the investment. Further Duncan allegedly failed to investigate the legitimacy of the Turkish investment and failed to provide investment advice in his clients’ best interest.

FINRA Claims to Recover Losses
All broker-dealers have a responsibility to adequately supervise their advisors. They must ensure they have procedures and systems in place to detect broker misconduct. Brokerage firms that fail to monitor the business activities of their employees may be liable for investment losses due to negligent supervision for the misconduct of their employees.
When brokers violate securities laws, such as making unsuitable investments, the brokerage firm they are working with may be liable for investment losses through FINRA Arbitration.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) operates the largest dispute resolution forum in the securities industry. In fact, FINRA Dispute Resolution is the forum for almost all disputes between investors, brokerage firms and individual brokers. This is mainly because the vast majority of brokerage firms have mandatory arbitration clauses in their account agreements that require investors to file their disputes through FINRA.
