Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is a broker with LPL Financial, doing business as Fellows Financial Group and Fellows Advisory.

An earlier investor complaint disclosed in Mr. Fellow’s BrokerCheck report was filed in 2007. This complaint alleged that as a representative of AXA Advisors, he sold an unsuitable variable life insurance policy. The claimants sought to lower the death benefit and monthly payment in the complaint, which was ultimately denied by the firm.
