OCTOBER 2017- Houston, TX
We are currently investigating former stockbroker William A. Hightower of Houston, TX, on behalf of a former UBS Financial Services client who alleges Hightower recommended that she invest in an unsuitable and illiquid investment, Reproductive Research Technologies.
Hightower was employed by UBS Financial Services from 2007-2013 and then by Legacy Asset Securities from 2013-2015.
In October 2015 Hightower was permanently barred from the securities industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Without admitting or denying the findings, Hightower agreed to the bar and to entry of findings that while employed by UBS Financial he failed to respond to requests for information in connection with a FINRA investigation that he improperly referred customers to an unapproved private securities transaction. Specifically, Hightower failed to provide a list of any customers he referred to the private securities transaction.
FINRA records report that former UBS Financial Services stockbroker William A. Hightower is named in currently pending FINRA arbitration case #15-03387 by a former customer who is seeking damages of $150,000 from UBS Financial Services.
The former UBS Financial Services customer alleges that in 2012 Hightower recommended the purchase of a high risk, illiquid and unsuitable private placement. Claimant further alleges omissions and misrepresentations regarding the recommended investment.
