Brian Turner Involved in Dispute Alleging Unsuitable Investment Recommendation

Mar 16, 2022 Unsuitable Investments

Brian Turner (CRD #: 5453135), a broker and investment advisor registered with Wells Fargo Clearing Services, is facing a pending dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on March 1, 2022.

According to the allegations filed on November 22, 2021, Brian Turner recommended unsuitable stocks in December 2020. 

Unsuitable Investment Recommendations Violate FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. An investor’s profile includes information about their risk tolerance, financial goals, and age. Investors who rely on their brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses through FINRA arbitration.

  • Investments can be unsuitable because they are high risk and likely to lose money.
  • Securities may also be unsuitable because they are illiquid, meaning they are intended to be held for an extended time, and investors may have to pay high fees to cash out.
  • Securities can be quantitatively unsuitable, which means that brokers executed an excessive number of trades.
  • These requirements apply to the overall investment strategy as well as the investments themselves. For instance, an investment strategy might be unsuitable if the securities are over-concentrated in a particular stock or sector.
