He is currently not registered with any state or firm.

According to his BrokerCheck report, Robert Cross is the subject of one regulatory sanction and one customer complaint.

In February 2016 FINRA barred Robert Cross following allegations he “failed to appear for on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA during the course of its investigation into his outside business activities, financial reporting obligations, and whether he accepted unapproved loans from a customer while engaging in a private securities transaction.”

In 2014 a customer alleged Robert Cross, while employed at Allstate Financial Services, breached his contract, committed fraud, converted funds, and acted negligently. The complaint settled in 2015 for $300,000, to which Mr. Cross individually contributed $300,000.
