Mr. Greenfield’s BrokerCheck report discloses multiple investor complaints. The most recent, filed in September 2022, alleges breach of contract, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and vicarious liability connected with alternative investments while he was a representative of Newbridge Securities Corporation. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages.
An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2020, alleged negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and violation of FINRA rules relating to an oil and gas master limited partnership while he was at Foreside Fund Services and Oppenheimer & Company.
