Brent Hablutzel: Why Did Rockefeller Financial Fire Colorado Advisor?
Rockefeller Financial recently fired Greenwood Village, Colorado financial advisor Brent Hablutzel (CRD# 4749339) in connection with alleged rule violations.

According to a disclosure on Mr. Hablutzel’s BrokerCheck report, Rockefeller Financial terminated his registration with the firm in July 2022. The firm fired him in relation to allegation she engaged in discretionary trading without proper authorization; that he displayed a “lack of candor” during an internal review; and that he lost management’s confidence as a result.

Filed in 2015, the complaint alleged that as a representative of Merrill Lynch, he misrepresented material information regarding a retirement plan rollover. The complaint alleged unspecified damages and was denied by the firm.
