Trevor Rahn’s practices were exposed by the New York Times article “Caring for Aging Parents, With an Eye on the Broker Handling Their Savings”, in 2018:

 

“After about six months, she [the daughter of one of Trevor Rahn’s clients] learned that the account, worth roughly $1.3 million at the start of 2017, had been charged $128,000 in commissions that year — nearly 10 percent of its value, and about 10 times what many financial planners would charge to manage accounts that size. […] About five months after Ms. Dewart questioned Mr. Rahn’s handling of the account, J.P. Morgan had canceled 681 of the 1,499 transactions for 2017, crediting about $84,000 in commissions…”
