Integrated Wealth Advisor John Ulwick Has Oil & Gas Complaint
Waltham, Massachusetts financial advisor John Ulwick (CRD# 1758865) has received an investor complaint detailing allegations concerning an oil and gas investment. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is a broker and investment advisor with LPL Financial and Integrated Wealth Concepts, doing business as Integrated Financial Partners. He was formerly a representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors.
Mr. Ulwick’s BrokerCheck report discloses two investor complaints. The most recent, filed in April 2022, alleges that as a representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation, he recommended an unsuitable oil and gas investment. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages believed to be greater than $5,000.
In a statement on the pending complaint’s disclosure, Mr. Ulwick defended himself against the allegations. “This investment was suitable for the client at the time of the purchase,” he wrote, adding that the customers were “experienced and knowledgeable investors” with experience investing in alternative products. “In fact, they had done quite well in these investments, realizing significant profits,” he commented, concluding: We discussed the risks involved with this investment and they had full disclosure, which they acknowledged in the paperwork they signed.”
An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2015, alleged that as a representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors, he recommended an unsuitable real estate investment trust (REIT). The complaint alleged unspecified damages believed to exceed $5,000 and was denied by the firm.
