Stoltmann Law Offices continues to investigate Terry Bahgat, a former broker with Gradient Securities and Cambridge Investment Research. Allegedly, from December 2014 until September 2016, Bahgat misappropriated funds of seven different clients by obtaining access to their brokerage accounts and then transferring the money to himself or WealthCFO, a company he controlled. According to a complaint filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bahgat also had his assistant pose as his clients on telephone calls with brokerage firms in order to obtain bill paying privileges. In September 2016, Bahgat fled the U.S. for Egypt. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) barred him from the securities industry permanently around that time after he failed to respond to a request for information. FINRA was investigating him for making misrepresentations in the sale of variable annuities.
According to public records with FINRA, Terry Bahgat was previously registered with Mutual of Omaha Fund Management Company, USLife Equity Sales Corp, Integrated Resources Equity Corp, Southmark Financial Services, FSC Securities Corp, MML Investors Services, LPL, Pruco Securities, Securities America, Wachovia Securities, Round Hill Securities, Summit Brokerage Services, Cambridge Investment Research in Amherst, New York from October 2010 until August 2015 and Gradient Securities in Amherst from July 2015 until October 2016. He has three customer disputes against him and one civil pending complaint. He has been permanently barred from the industry.
