Investment Advisor Christopher Turean allegedly Misappropriated Customer Funds
The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) announced this week public sanctions against several representatives including reportedly Christopher Turean of Fishers, Indiana. In July 2022, the CFP Board reportedly permanently revoked Turean’s right to use the CFP® certification marks after he allegedly failed to acknowledge a “Notice of Investigation.”
The CFP Board was reportedly investigating allegations that Turean allegedly misrepresented investment products to misappropriate customer funds. Turean’s administrative revocation was effective as of August 16, 2022.
According to Turean’s Investment Adviser Public Disclosure, he is also allegedly under investigation by the Internal Revenue Service and the US Postal Service for “misappropriation of customer funds.”
Valeo Financial Advisors reportedly discharged Turean on February 6, 2022 for the above allegations. Turean was reportedly affiliated with the following investment advisors during his career in the securities industry:
