Bill Sines: New Complaint Against Senior Financial Services Advisor

Multiple investor complaints against Seminole, Florida financial advisor Bill Sines (CRD# 2190586) allege that he recommended unsuitable investments. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records indicate that he is a broker and an investment advisor with Berthel Fisher & Company Financial Services, doing business as Senior Financial Services.

Mr. Sines’ BrokerCheck report discloses several investor complaints. The most recent, filed in January 2023, alleges that as a representative of Berthel Fisher & Company and Kalos Capital, he misrepresented and recommended unsuitable real estate investments. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages estimated to exceed $5,000. In a statement included with the complaint’s disclosure, Mr. Sines wrote that he “denies the allegations and asserts the investment purchased by the customer was suitable for their investment objectives.”

An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2017, alleged that he recommended unsuitable real estate and mutual fund products while at Kalos Capital. In 2018 the complaint reached a settlement of $19,373. Mr. Sines defended himself against the allegations in a statement included with the complaint’s disclosure, writing: “I put client into investments that would produce stable long term income and enough liquidity to meet changing needs as requested. All investments were explained to client and were approved accordingly.”

A third investor complaint, filed in 2007, alleged that as a representative of SII Investments, he sold unsuitable variable annuity products. In 2003 the complaint reached a settlement of $36,000.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Bill Sines holds 31 years of securities industry experience.
