Paul Raehpour: Merrill Lynch Advisor Faces ETF Allegations

A recent investor complaint against McKinney, Texas financial advisor Paul Raehpour (CRD# 4508598) alleges that she made unauthorized exchange-traded fund transactions. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is registered as a broker and an investment advisor with Merrill Lynch.

Mr. Raehpour’s BrokerCheck report discloses multiple investor complaints. The most recent, filed in June 2024, alleges that as a representative of Merrill Lynch, he made unauthorized trades involving exchange-traded fund products. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages.

An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2008, alleged that as a representative of Morgan Stanley, he made unauthorized bond purchases. The complaint reached a settlement of $6,392.40.

A third investor complaint, filed in 2008, alleged that he sold unsuitable auction rate securities while registered with Morgan Stanley & Company. The complaint reached a settlement involving the firm’s repurchase of the securities at par value, or $200,000.

Merrill Lynch’s website includes a profile of Mr. Raehpour that describes his philosophy and experience, including his background in the entertainment industry. “It’s important to plan for your financial future, which means getting more than investment advice,” it explains. “Our commitment is centered on helping you achieve your goals by making your needs a priority.
