James Mahan Permanently Barred from Securities Industry

James Mahan Public records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on September 7, 2016 indicate that former Texas-based Raymond James Financial Services broker James Mahan has been permanently barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities to the public. The securities and investment fraud law firm Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Mahan (CRD# 5787176).

James Mahan has spent six years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Raymond James Financial Services in New Braunfels, Texas (2015-2016). Previous registrations include JP Morgan Securities in New Braunfels, Texas; Merrill Lynch in San Antonio, Texas; and Chase Investment Services in New Braunfels, Texas. He is currently not registered with any state or firm.

According to his BrokerCheck report, James Mahan has received one FINRA sanction and one denied customer complaint.

In July 2016, FINRA sanctioned James Mahan following allegations he “refused to appear for on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA after his member firm filed an amended Form U5 reporting that he was under internal review for recommending an unapproved outside investment to a client of the firm.” He was permanently barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities to the public.

In September 2015, a customer alleged James Mahan, while employed at JP Morgan Securities, solicited an unapproved investment. The customer sought $101,000 in damages in the complaint, which was denied.
