Rob Urban: Why Did Ex-Morgan Stanley Advisor Resign?
Westhampton Beach, New York financial advisor Rob Urban (CRD# 2561504) recently resigned from Ameriprise Financial Services following allegations of misconduct. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that the Cetera Advisor Networks representative previously resigned from a former member firm over alleged misconduct as well.
Mr. Urban’s BrokerCheck report discloses both his resignations from prior member firms. In May 2022 he resigned from Ameriprise following allegations “related to trade authorization,” according to the disclosures. And in February 2018 he resigned from Morgan Stanley Wealth Management following “[a]llegations regarding timeliness and accuracy of registered representative’s disclosures of his involvement in a real estate transaction with a client.”
A third disclosure on Mr. Urban’s BrokerCheck report concerns an investor complaint against him. Filed in 2004, the complaint alleged that as a representative of Merrill Lynch, he did not inform the customer of the risk of market fluctuation associated with investments in four closed-end mutual funds. The complaint reached a settlement of $24,000.
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Rob Urban holds 25 years of securities industry experience. Based in Westhampton Beach, New York, he has been a broker with Cetera Advisor Networks since May 2022. His past registrations include Ameriprise Financial Services (Westhampton Beach, New York; 2020-2022), LPL Financial (Westhampton Beach, New York; 2020), EK Riley Investments (Westhampton Beach, New York; 2018-2020), Morgan Stanley (Riverhead, New York; 2009-2018), Morgan Stanley & Company (Riverhead, New York; 2008-2009), and Merrill Lynch (Riverhead, New York; 1997-2008).
