Richard Crittenden: Did Janney Advisor Make Unauthorized Trades?

A recent investor complaint against Richmond, Virginia financial advisor Richard Crittenden (CRD# 1190153) alleges that he made unauthorized transactions, resulting in losses. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is registered as a broker and an investment advisor with Janney Montgomery Scott.

Mr. Crittenden’s BrokerCheck report discloses two investor complaints. The most recent, filed in May 2024, alleges that as a representative of Janney Montgomery Scott, he sold securities in an estate’s account without the executrix’s authorization, resulting in a loss of value. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages.

An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2004, alleged that as a representative of Legg Mason Wood Walker, he made unauthorized trades, failed to follow instructions, and recommended unsuitable bond investments. The complaint alleged damages of $111,770.79 and was denied.

Janney Montgomery Scott’s website includes a profile of Mr. Crittenden that describes his background and approach. “I have always believed in a holistic approach to help clients achieve their financial goals through trusted advice and unparalleled service,” it states. “I define my success by how well I understand a client’s situation and how well the customized plan that I develop for each client works.
