Fitapelli Kurta is interested in speaking to investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Budd (CRD# 1337006).

Peter Budd has spent 32 years in the securities industry and has been registered with Benjamin F. Edwards & Company in Morristown, New Jersey since 2013.

According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received two customer complaints and was discharged from a former employer in connection to alleged rule violations.

In 2013 he was terminated from his position at UBS Financial Services “because management lost confidence in his ability to perform the responsibilities of his position for reasons including an internal review that found violations of firm policies on order entry, communications with clients, the reporting of a client complaint and cross-border business.”

In 2002 a customer alleged Peter Budd, while employed at Bear Stearns & Company, misrepresented material facts, over-leveraged the account, and over-concentrated the account in speculative securities. The complaint settled for $14,999.

In 1993 a customer alleged Peter Budd misrepresented material facts, breached contract, breached his fiduciary duty, committed fraud, and acted negligently. The complaint settled in 1994 for $36,500.
