FINRA charges David Braeger of Rubicon Capital

David Braeger Charged by FINRA

In a complaint filed by the FINRA Department of Enforcement in July, 2016 David Braeger of Bayside, Wisconsin was charged with misusing customer funds and failing to return funds to the customers.  The allegations include charges that the Barager misused customer funds intended for an investment in his Rubicon Capital Appreciation Fund.  According to the complaint, Braeger took $30,000 from the customers and failed to return the funds, despite the fact that he had closed Rubicon Capital.  He also represented that Rubicon Capital had been performing soundly, and even provided the customers with statements showing the funds had been invested as initially represented.

The claim filed by FINRA is not final, and until the allegations have been proven in a court of law, no adverse inferences should be drawn.
