Peiffer Wolf is currently investigating claims against Barry Pechenik of Morgan Stanley. He is a Senior Vice-President at McKinney Kelton Godat Pechenik (a Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management).

 

Despite claims on the website that Private Wealth Management helps clients “manage investments with an unwavering focus on [their] financial strategy and personal goals” and “create comprehensive, multigenerational wealth management plans based on [their] needs, challenges and the values that guide [their] life and legacy”, Barry Pechenick and Morgan Stanley are facing allegations of doing exactly the opposite to at least one client.

 

According to a FINRA arbitration recently filed, the client was misled by promises of minimal risks in investments that, in the end, amounted to losses of more than half of a million dollars. The client alleges that Barry Pechenik recommended investing in products that required the use of margin (like structured products, oil and gas equities, etc.),  which means he allegedly did not follow the legal and regulatory obligations to recommend only suitable investments that are appropriate for each individual client.

 

According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck website for Public Disclosures, Barry Pechenik has also 1 Customer Dispute from 2019 with allegations of unsuitability.
