Apr 28, 2023 Unsuitable Investments

Investors may have also engaged his services through LGR Wealth Solutions. If you have questions about his alleged conduct as a broker, keep reading.

Investor Dispute

On March 7, 2023, multiple investors filed a dispute alleging that Brandon LeBlanc purchased unsuitable investments and changed their Model Wealth Portfolio investment objectives without their knowledge or permission. This misconduct allegedly occurred between November 30, 2021, and November 3, 2022.

Investors sought $100,000 in damages, but the dispute was denied by the firm.

Investors should know, however, that firms can deny disputes without an external review. Investors may be able to recover their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration after a denial.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to tailor their investment recommendations to suit investors’ profiles. An investor’s profile contains information about their age, tax status, and financial goals.

Investors who rely on brokers for investment recommendations can potentially recover their losses by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
