In September 2016 FINRA sanctioned Christopher Goslin following allegations he “failed to provide prior written notice to, and receive approval from his member firm, of an outside business activity from which he had a reasonable expectation of compensation.” According to FINRA’s complaint: “Specifically, the outside business activity was a limited liability corporation that had been formed for tax and asset protection purposes. At the time of its formation, Goslin, who was not an owner or officer, reasonably expected to be compensated in the form of distributions from the corporation, and, in fact, he received monetary distributions from the outside business.” He was issued a one-month suspension and fine of $5,000.

In May 2016 a customer alleged Christopher Goslin, while employed at Harbor Light Securities, mismanaged a trust and improperly charged trust fees. The customer is seeking $15,000 in damages in the pending complaint.

In October 2015 a customer alleged he, while employed at Gunallen Financial, breached his fiduciary duty, misrepresented and omitted material facts, and failed to perform a reasonable basis suitability analysis. The customer is seeking more than $605,400 in damages in the pending complaint.

In 2010 a customer alleged he, while employed at Gunnallen Financial, misrepresented material facts. The complaint settled for $77,000.
