Joao Bastos: Did Miami Beach Advisor Make Unauthorized Purchase?

Citigroup Global Markets advisor Joao Bastos (CRD# 4628555) recently received an investor complaint alleging he made an unauthorized purchase. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is a broker and an investment advisor based in Miami Beach, Florida.
