Randy Burke Investigation- Former Stockbroker Calton & Associates-Hickory, N. Carolina

1/25/2016-Hickory, North Carolina

Rex Securities Law is investigating former Calton & Associates broker Randy W. Burke.

According to his FINRA brokercheck report, Burke was  barred from the securities industry October 2015, to resolve FINRA allegations that  between February 2008 and May 2011, while registered with Synergy Investment Group and Capital Investment Group (CIG) , he participated in private securities transactions without first providing notice to his member firm.

In addition, FINRA alleged that between February 2008 and June 2013, Burke, while registered with Synergy, Capital Investment Group  and Calton & Associates, made material misrepresentations and omissions in connection with the sale of private securities in violation of SEC and FINRA rules.

Burke provided false answers in response to annual certifications from his member firms regarding his outside business activities in violation of FINRA rules, the regulator alleged.

A former customer filed a complaint against Burke alleging that he had made misrepresentations to them in recommending an unsuitable real estate investment. That matter was resolved for over $264,000. Currently there is a customer dispute pending alleging a fraudulent investment in an entity called Lodge Alaska, LLC. That customer alleges that Burke utilized the invested funds for personal use.

Burke’s FINRA records reveal that he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2015.
