Al Adan Allegedly Recommended Unsuitable Investments

Al Adan (CRD #: 5471160), a broker registered with Edward Jones, is the subject of an investor dispute. This disclosure appears on his BrokerCheck record, accessed on November 6, 2023. Keep reading if you have questions about alleged conduct. 

On August 10, 2023, an authorized party on an investor’s account alleged that Al Adan made unsuitable recommendations for a now-deceased client. The investments were allegedly unsuitable given the investor’s age and aversion to risk. The investor sought $85,000 but the dispute was denied by the firm. 

The dispute was denied by the firm, but investors should know that firms can deny disputes without any external review. Following a denial, investors may still be able to recover their funds via FINRA arbitration.

What is an Unsuitable Investment?

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment strategy fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must examine the investor’s profile, which contains the following investor characteristics:

  • Age
  • Risk tolerance
  • Time horizon (i.e., how long the investor plans to hold the investment)
  • Investing experience
  • Tax status
  • Financial goals

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover losses from unsuitable investment recommendations by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
