Popular Securities broker Jose Ramon Martinez has six pending customer complaints on his CRD, including a customer complaint filed in late October 2020 claiming $500,000 in losses. The claims allege that recommendations to invest in Puerto Rico securities were unsuitable given the clients’ risk tolerance and Puerto Rico’s well-known deteriorating financial condition.
Mr. Martinez (CRD#: 1402991) has been in the securities industry for 33 years. He has been registered with Popular Securities in San Juan, Puerto Rico, since 2008.
Mr. Martinez has been the subject of twenty-one customer complaints, most of which allege violations similar to those outlined in the pending case filed in 2020: unsuitable recommendations, overconcentration, and misrepresentation related to Puerto Rico municipal bonds and closed-end funds.
