Westlake Village Rep Christina Orta: Alternative Investment Complaint

The pending complaint alleges damages of $175,000.

Ms. Orta’s former member firm, Securities America, has received investor complaints as well. According to the firm’s own BrokerCheck report, it has received 27 complaints that resulted in FINRA arbitration awards. A 2015 complaint, for example, alleged breach of fiduciary duty, misrepresentation, unsuitable investment recommendations, and negligence, concluding with an award to the claimant of $552,693.02. Several years earlier, a 2010 complaint alleging breach of fiduciary duty, misrepresentation, negligence, and failure to supervise concluded with an award to the claimant of $1,155,466.01.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Christina Orta holds 14 years of securities industry experience. She is a stockbroker affiliated with Cambridge Investment Research in Westlake Village, Walnut Village, Oakland, and Pasadena, California, where she has been registered since 2020.
