Wade et al v Morgan Keegan - $370,000 (MKHIX, MKIBX, RMH, RSF, RHY) Award
In November 2009, a FINRA arbitration panel in Birmingham, AL ordered Morgan Keegan to pay $370,000 in damages. The award was made after a hearing wherein the Claimants alleged Respondents breached contractual and fiduciary duties, failed to suitably invest Claimants' accounts, and failed to supervise Claimants' accounts. The claims related to Claimants' investments in the RMK Select High Income Fund (MKHIX), RMK Select Intermediate Bond Fund (MKIBX), RMK High Income Fund (RMH), RMK Strategic Income Fund (RSF) and RMK Multi-Sector High Income Fund (RHY). Dr. O'Neal testified on behalf of the Claimants.
