Kirk Badii Investigation

May 2022-Southlake, TX

The FINRA records of  Kirk Badii,  a  stockbroker who previously worked for UBS Financial Services , disclose a pending customer dispute  and 2 terminations from employment.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms. FINRA requires brokers and brokerage firms to report customer complaints and disputes as well as regulatory sanctions. In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.

In 12/2021 a customer of Badii’s prior employer, UBS Financial Services, file FINRA case 21-3080. The customer, an elderly homemaker, alleged that Badii mismanaged her accounts by recommending alternative investments that were unsuitable and that he did not fully explain the risks. This elderly claimant also alleges that credit lines were established to qualify her for the purchase of the alternative investments as well as using the credit lines to make distributions to her family, who believed the distributions were income from the investments. The customer seeks damages of $3 million in this currently pending case.

Kirk Badii worked for UBS Financial Services from 5/2012-8/2018 when he was discharged by UBS. The company makes the following allegation on Badii’s FINRA record: “FA was discharged after firm review found, among other things, that FA (i) violated firm’s social media policy and blocked management’s ability to monitor his social media and (ii) violated firm’s KYC/AML policy in connection with the onboarding of certain clients and prospects.” 

Earlier in his career Badii was “permitted to resign” from Credit Suisse Securities for violations of firm policy.

Kirk Badii currently is registered with Independent Financial Group in Southlake, TX. His prior registration history also includes Cantella & Co.
