Investor Dispute

On August 24, 2022, an investor alleged that Brian Strom changed her investment objectives and placed her in a higher-risk portfolio. This dispute was denied by the firm.

Investors should know, however, that firms can deny disputes without an outside review. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration following a denial and may be able to recoup their losses.

FINRA Rule 2111

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

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

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
