According to his BrokerCheck report, Kim Isaacson has received one customer complaint, one pending customer complaint and one FINRA investigation, and resigned from his position at Morgan Stanley.

In April 2016 FINRA announced an investigation into allegations that Kim Isaacson participated in “potential violations under FINRA Rule 2010: making verbal misrepresentations to a Firm customer about the customer’s account values and performance.” FINRA Rule 2010, for reference, stipulates that FINRA members must “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” The investigation remains pending.

The complaint resulted in an award to the customer in June 2016 of $3,586,989.

In 2014 Kim Isaacson submitted his “voluntary resignation” from Morgan Stanley following allegations he “verbally provided a client inaccurate information about the client’s account performance.”
