UBS Financial Services advisor David Barnes (CRD# 2181896) recently received an investor complaint alleging his investment advice resulted in more than $3 million in damages. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is a broker and an investment advisor based in Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Barnes’ BrokerCheck report discloses two investor complaints.
