Who Is James “Eddie” Lyons? | Shreveport Golfer Turned Broker

 

James Edward Lyons, better known as Eddie, was a Shreveport broker for Raymond James & Associates in Shreveport, LA.   Eddie is well-known in the Shreveport-Bosier City golf community due to his past amateur golfing successes. However, he is now gaining infamy in the area for the recent allegations of  losing Millions of Dollars for investors through his unauthorized and reckless securities trading.  Although Eddie is not named in the “Statement of Claims” filed with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), it is alleged that his wealth management firm, Raymond James & Associates and his Shreveport branch manager failed to supervise Eddie.

 

So far, nearly 30 investors have asked a FINRA Arbitration Panel to hear their claims.  Unfortunately, these investors range from the elderly to charitable organizations that feed the homeless. Even worse, these investors are estimating their losses at around $5 Million. The $5 Million claim stems from the amount the investors expected to realize from the management of a conservative investment portfolio by Eddie Lyons.

 

The investor allegations are tied to Eddie Lyons‘ investments in risky oil and gas trusts and partnerships. Additionally, these investors are claiming that Lyons was initiating investments and trades without their knowledge.  If you believe that you were a victim to broker misconduct, investment fraud or unauthorized trading, contact us by filling out a Contact Form or by calling 216-242-6184 for a FREE Consultation on your potential Eddie Lyons Lawsuit.
