According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received two regulatory sanctions and one pending customer complaint, and was discharged from two former employers in connection to alleged rule violations.

In October 2017 a customer alleged Andrew Pravlik, while employed at Prospera Financial Services, recommended unsuitable investments in insurance products, real estate securities, and a unit investment trust. The customer is seeking $175,000 in damages in the pending complaint.

In January 2017 he was terminated from his position at Prospera Financial Services following allegations he violated firm policy by failing to submit a written correspondence.

In 2010 FINRA sanctioned him following allegations that in effecting mutual fund redemptions for customers, he falsely coded redemption requests, ultimately causing the firm’s records to be inaccurate. He was issued a 90-day suspension and a fine of $5,000.

In 2009 he was terminated from his position at Hefren-Tillotson in connection to an investigation into whether an order entry complied with industry standards.
