Former Santander Securities broker Hortensia Llavat has twenty-three pending customer complaints on her CRD, including three customer complaints filed in 2020 claiming over $250,000 in losses.
The claims allege that recommendations to invest in Puerto Rico municipal bonds and closed-end funds were unsuitable and led to overconcentration of the accounts in these securities. Further, the claims allege that Ms. Llavat and Santander misrepresented the safety of the investments.
Ms. Llavat (CRD#: 1010318) has been in the securities industry for 39 years. She was registered with Santander Securities between 2000 and 2018. She has been registered with Stonecrest Capital Markets, Inc. since March 2018.
