According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one customer complaint and recently resigned from his former employer in connection to alleged misconduct.

In April 2018 he submitted his “voluntary resignation” from his position at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management following allegations regarding his “involvement in the provision of services to clients outside the scope of the firm’s services.”

In 2006 a customer alleged Ken Kavanagh, while employed at UBS Financial Services, made unauthorized mutual fund transactions. The complaint settled with the firm’s cancellation of the transactions in question.
